Movie Theater Marquees: Escape from New York (1981)

EFNY Marquee 1981

If this is Escape from New York playing in New York, that’s pretty cool. Even better if it’s Manhattan.

Sign me up for Firecracker, also from 1981: “She’ll mix seduction with destruction in the screen’s first erotic Kung Fu classic.”

    On th IMDB page for Firecracker, the trailer reads: She’ll Send You To Heaven, And Then To Hell!

    Apparently she ends up fighting the final battle in nothing but her underwear, having every other piece of clothing ripped off.

    That looks lie the old Anco cinema on the south side of West 42nd Street, which means it is indeed in midtown Manhattan. The Port Authority Bus Terminal on 8th Avenue can be seen behind it. Great photo!
