A gang called The Warriors are framed for killing a gang leader trying to unite all the gangs in the area. With other gangs gunning for them they must get back to the home turf of Coney Island... Alive.
The 1979 classic The Warriors is more popular now than it has ever been. And the main cast was on the scene for a special event celebrating the movie at Coney Island. Michael Beck (Swan), David Harris (Cochise), Dorsey Wright (Cleon), Terry Michos (Vermin) and Thomas G. Waites (Fox) were all in attendance to meet fans and regale audiences with memories of making the Walter Hill cult masterpiece. They even recreated their iconic subway ride. The film still has an impact on fans to this day, 36 years after its release, and has even spawned actual gangs who've made Coney Island their turf.
The original cast of The Warriors met back up on the Q Train on September 13, taking one last ride together into Coney Island. There, hundreds of fans awaited the street soldiers.
