Alphabet City

Wed, Nov 3

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Wed, Nov 3 @ 9:30 pm: Followed by a Q&A with director Amos Poe, moderated by Joe Berger of The Deuce Film Series

Director: Amos Poe Run Time: 85 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 1984

Starring: Vincent Spano, Kate Vernon, Michael Winslow, Jami Gertz, Zohra Lampert

Armored in black-studded leather, mesh, and mousse, Vincent Spano’s mobster middle-man Johnny (aka ‘Chunga’) saddles up his Pontiac Firebird and takes on the neon drenched street’s of Manhattan’s Heroin City – where Avenue A extends to the River East…. and hard choices make for harder lessons learned: will he get out or will he get BURNED?!!

Directed by ‘No Wave’ maverick and downtown-denizen Amos Poe (The Blank Generation, Glenn O’Brien’s TV Party) and shot by Oliver Wood (in a style that directly influenced Miami Vice), ALPHABET CITY scorches the screen with hot-headed performers, fast-paced action, and an electro-drenched score (by Chic co-founder and pop music mastermind Nile Rodgers)…  culminating in one gloriously satisfying roller coaster ride of redemption.

Celebrating their gorgeously restored and recently released Blu-ray, Fun City Editions invites you to an evening with director Amos Poe, presenting a rare 35mm print of ALPHABET CITY… with special guest Joe ‘Zieg’ Berger of The Deuce Film Series moderating a post-screening Q&A!
