42nd Street Grindhouse Listings, 1978-1993

Every* movie that played one of the 42nd Street grindhouse theaters (the Rialto, Victory, Lyric, Times Square, Apollo, Selwyn, New Amsterdam, Cine 42, Liberty, Harris, Empire, and Anco) from May 1978 until November 1993

*What's missing: porn, obviously, and any film not on letterboxd or that played 42nd street under a weird name that I couldn't figure out. The latter are mostly kung fu movies. If you are curious about all the porn or kung fu films that played, you can consult the attached pdf of the weekly listings. If you notice any errors or omissions (and I'm sure there are many), I will fix/add them.

The listings come from the Village Voice. The Voice did not carry listings from…
