Lyle Preslar of Minor Threat ‘Punk the Capital’ Q&A & other special events coming to Nitehawk Theaters


Punk the Capital, the new documentary about the early DC punk scene, is screening on Thursday (9/19) at Nitehawk Prospect Park as part of the BrooklynVegan-presented Music Driven series. There’s also a Q&A with Lyle Preslar (Minor Threat, Extorts, Samhain), Howard Wuelfing (Nurses, Slickee Boys, Yesterday and Today Records), Gary Gabriel (The Enzymes), and the film’s co-creators James June Schneider, Paul Bishow and Sam Lavine, plus “surprise guests.” Tickets are still available and you can watch the trailer for Punk the Capital below.

In other punk-related Nitehawk news, they’re screening the 1985 punk zombie horror comedy Return of the Living Dead at Nitehawk Williamsburg on Friday (9/20), and 1979 youth-gone-wild film Over the Edge (starring a very young Matt Dillon) screens at Nitehawk Prospect Park on October 9. That also includes a Q&A with screenwriter Tim Hunter and actor Michael Kramer. Watch trailers for both of those below.

Also: In Fabric, the new film from director Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio, The Duke of Burgundy) which features a score by Stereolab leader Tim Gane’s current band, Cavern of Anti-Matter, screens at Nitehawk Park Slope on Wednesday (9/18). Watch the trailer for that below.

Still more: there’s a special screening of the 1978 animated adaptation of Watership Down at Nitehawk Williamsburg on October 8 with a live score by Long Distance Poison, and Morricone Youth will perform a live score to horror classic Night of the Living Dead at Nitehawk Prospect Park on October 30.
