Coney Island gets some love this weekend with the 13th annual Coney Island Film Festival. Beginning today and running through Sunday, the storied Brooklyn neighborhood will host a lineup of eccentric shorts and features about everything ranging from mermaids to past and current amusement-park rides. The most exciting thing? A screening of the cult classic and one of my favorite films, The Warriors, on Saturday night at 11PM ($12).
Full festival passes run at $50, with individual day screening passes available. Screenings are held at the legendary Sideshows by the Seashore theater, and tonight there will be live performances featuring sideshow & burlesque stars.
