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.

About From Mambo to Hip Hop
Produced by Elena Martínez and Steve Zeitlin, directed by Henry Chalfant. 56 minutes.
Even in its darkest period, the Bronx created young hip hop artists in music, dance, art, and poetry in the forms of deejay mixes, b-boying, graffiti, and rap. Chalfant shows how closely linked are the two cultures of salsa and breaking.

New York City’s borough of the South Bronx was home to many of the new immigrants from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and other Caribbean islands in the late 40s and early 50s. Machito had already made his musical mark with his Afro-Cuban mixture of Caribbean music and jazz. Mambo ruled the dance floor. Soon Ray Barreto, Willie Colon, and Eddie Palmieri joined existing bands and then formed their own groups to introduce new songs, rhythms, and dances, all of which eventually led to the salsa revolution of the 1970s.  The Fania All-Stars propelled salsa across the nation and beyond.

Growing up in the midst of salsa rhythms, younger dancers, both African American and Latinos, responded most strongly to the instrumental “breaks” being selected by deejays rebelling against the disco craze of the 70s. Soon mixes of these breaks became the music for “break dancers” (eventually known as b-boys/b-girls).
