punk rock doc ‘D.O.A. – A Rite of Passage’ & ‘Sid & Nancy’ showing at Nitehawk
Cult classic punk rock documentary D.O.A - A Rite of Passage followed the Sex Pistols on their sole U.S. tour, which ended with the band breaking up on stage at San Francisco's Winterland on January 14, 1978. Produced by High Times magazine, it caught the craziness firsthand, and includes the infamous in-bed interview with Syd Vicious and Nancy Spungen. It's interspersed with footage of other punk acts of the era, including The Dead Boys, Generation X, The Rich Kids, the X-Ray Spex, Sham 69, and more. Two days shy of the 40th anniversary of the Sex Pistols' Winterland show, D.O.A. will be shown at Brooklyn's Nitehawk Cinema on Friday, January 12 at 11:45 PM. Tickets are on sale, and you can watch the trailer for the film below.
If you want more Sex Pistols movie options, Nitehawk will be showing Alex Cox's classic Syd & Nancy on February 9 (tickets). It's part of Nitehawk's Valentines month "Love" series that also includes Wild at Heart (2/2), Brokeback Mountain (2/3), Groundhog Day (2/3), True Romance (2/10), Nekromantik (2/16), Possession (2/23), and Chi-Raq (2/24).
