Nitehawk Cinema Presents:
Spirits, Dinner and a Movie with The Dead Rabbit

In 1863, Amsterdam Vallon returns to the Five Points area of New York City seeking revenge against Bill the Butcher, his father’s killer.

Nitehawk’s launches its new signature series SPIRITS, DINNER AND A MOVIE this August as we’ve teamed up with The Dead Rabbit (2013 Tales of the Cocktail World’s Best New Cocktail Bar) to present Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York. This screening will include incredible crafted cocktails by The Dead Rabbit paired with a delicious food menu inspired by the film. The best part? You’ll be served each course during the specific moments inspired by the film so you can experience edible sensations while watching the action unfold on-screen!

Jack McGarry (2013 Tales of the Cocktail International Bartender of the Year) and Sean Muldoon join us from The Dead Rabbit.

Giving us some of the classic representations of gangsters in cinema, Gangs of New York is Martin Scorsese’s epic love letter to the gritty roots of New York City. At heart, it’s a revenge movie about a young man who returns to New York in order to avenge the death of his father by rival gang member, Bill the Butcher (one of the most memorable performances in film by Daniel Day Lewis). But it’s also about immigration, territory disputes, and the changing landscape of America in the mid 19th century. Larger than life, the film has it all: history, love, loyalty, revenge, and true o.g. gang violence.
