THE WARRIORS REUNITED FOR THE LAST TIME IN CONEY ISLAND THIS SUNDAY .. IT WAS AN EPIC TURNOUT

The Warriors, a gritty 1979 movie about gang warfare on the mean streets of New York City. More than 5,000 diehard fans of the cult classic turned out for a cast reunion at Coney Island.

Warriors Reunion 2015. It’s history. It’s Hollywood history. It’s Bronx history. It’s Coney Island history.

36 years after its debut, The Warriors film is being honored with what could be its final in-person celebration. This Sunday, September 13, the film’s cast will reunite at the place where the movie’s climactic sequence unfolds: the Surf Pavilion on Coney Island. The reunion will include members of the titular Warriors gang as well as actors from the film’s memorable antagonist crews like the Baseball Furies, all of whom will rock their The Warriors costumes and makeup one last time. For the fans, there will be autograph signings, meet-and-greet sessions, a cosplay contest, and musical performances.  As a bonus to top the event off, there’s also a screening of the movie.
