Joe Bob Briggs Presents "THE WARRIORS" in New York -- One Night Only

Hosted by Joe Bob Briggs

The Little Theatre
240 East Avenue, Rochester, N.Y.
Saturday, October 1
8 p.m.

(Come early for signing and schmoozing.)

Joe Bob will be appearing for one night only at the historic Little Theatre in downtown Rochester. The Little Theatre was part of the Little Cinema movement of the 1920s, part of the revolt against canned Hollywood product, meaning they’ve been showing independent films and foreign films since the silent era—87 years, to be precise.

We’re celebrating the Walter Hill cult classic The Warriors, based on the 1965 Sol Yurick about New York gangs, which was in turn based on the Anabasis by the Greek soldier Xenophon, which was an account of the 10,000 Greek mercenaries who got stranded near Baghdad and had to fight their way all the way back to Greece—1200 miles!

After the screening we’ll have a question and answer session. Before the screening Joe Bob will be signing posters, books, shirts, photos, whatever.

This event is being sponsored by the guys who run Fright-Rags, and there’s a possibility that they’ll still have a few of the MonsterVision shirts that went on sale earlier this week. (The posters sold out in 30 minutes.)
