Watch an ’80s dystopian classic about a US police state

In John Carpenter's "Escape From New York," Kurt Russell plays Snake Plissken, a dude who's called back to duty after he opted out of US society — because society has turned into a totalitarian police state. Despite uncomfortable shades of comparison with the actual present, the movie is a blast. Watch it at this Queen Village bottle shop, where you can self-medicate with beer at will.
