Tampa Theatre Rewind Series: The Warriors says
REWIND – A Different Kind of Movie Series

Everybody has at least one REWIND movie in them. The movie you always watch when it’s on TV. The movie you finish, rewind, and start right over. It isn’t a movie you know you “should” like. It isn’t a movie that is “important.” You know your REWIND movie is good, even if nobody else does.

Intended as an “occasional series,” REWIND will announce a few films at a time as the Theatre’s calendar permits.

Gangs own the night in the streets of New York City. And Cyrus, the charismatic leader of the strongest gang there is, has a plan—if all the gangs stop killing each other and start working together, 60,000 strong, they can overtake the cops and run the city completely. But a shot rings out, and the conclave breaks up in terror. Framed for murder, the Warriors have to make it back to their home turf in Coney Island while every thug, criminal and cop in the city wants their heads…

If you’ve never seen The Warriors, don’t worry about it. Everybody you think is cool has, and they’ve been cribbing from it since 1979. You’ve seen people clinking bottles, telling you to come out and play. You’ve seen people dressed up like the Baseball Furies, and you’ve heard commercials for shoes telling all the boppers about the good news. Or maybe you just remember New York before Giuliani. The Warriors was so controversial on its release that Paramount stopped advertising it on television and radio. Now it’s like looking through a warped photo album—it’s the past’s nightmare of the future, a neon disco A Clockwork Orange.

Plus, everybody is just so cool.

Put on your colors, come down to Tampa Theatre, and get back together with the old gang. Rewind for a night. Can you dig it?
