“Come out and play!”

On Tuesday, June 27th, join me in the back room of Minnie’s Bar for my monthly cult film event, Attack of the 50-Foot Movie. This month, we’ll be celebrating one of the most iconic New York City movies ever made: “The Warriors”.

This larger-than-life tale of a mythical, colorfully costumed street gang battling its way from the Bronx to Coney Island may feel quaint and kitschy these days. But when it hit theaters in 1979, the film was blamed for rampant outbreaks of violence and vandalism, and at least three killings (none of which, by the way, happened in New York). At the time, its reputation for stirring up audiences was enough that Paramount pulled all radio and TV advertising, and offered to reimburse theaters for security and repair expenses in exchange for not dropping the movie. Over 200 movie theaters in America hired additional security personnel specifically for screenings of “The Warriors”.

We’re pretty sure that Tuesday’s event will be a little more mellow than that. However, viewers should be warned that, while the gangs in “The Warriors” are mostly cartoonish by today’s standards, there are quite a few violent fight scenes, as well as an attempted sexual assault, and at least one homophobic slur. If you are uncomfortable with this, you might want to skip this one.

Also, we’re expecting a big turnout for this one, and seating in the back room is VERY limited. Come early to make sure you get a seat.

Oh yeah: Did we mention that we’ll be starting the party with a LIVE burlesque performance by the one and only Corvette LeFace? Yet another reason to show up early!

I recently had the honor of filming the queer drag collective Switch n’ Play as they performed their “Vamp!” show in the Atrium at Lincoln Center.

This incredibly talented group has come a long way from their origins in the back room at Branded Saloon in Brooklyn. Here’s the one and only Sasha Velour doing, well… you’ll see.

Watch the whole Switch n’ Play collection here!


If you weren’t at Minnie’s Bar on November 29, all we can say is, you missed it.  

In perhaps our most meta moment yet, my monthly movie event Attack of the 50-Foot Movie celebrated its one-year Minnie’s anniversary by screening the 1958 sci-fi classic that gave us our name: “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman”. And to open the festivities, we had a larger-than-life 50-Foot Woman-themed drag performance by the one and only Miss Malice!

There will be no Attack of the 50-Foot Movie event in December.

However, on Friday, December 16, we’ll be joining forces with the infamous Last Chance Dancers for Pain and Pleasure: A Burlesque Tribute to Judas Priest at Brooklyn’s wildest heavy metal bar, Lucky 13 Saloon. I’ll be there to open the evening with an encore screening the legendary 1986 documentary “Heavy Metal Parking Lot”. Tickets are $20 and available here.

Get yours now! If you think this event won’t sell out, you’ve got another thing comin’…

Attack of the 50-Foot Movie will return to Minnie’s Bar on January 31st, 2023. Check back soon for more details.

In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture of Miss Malice for you to marvel at.

Happy New Year!
