Save Coney Island's Movie Night And Briefing

Watch the "Little Fugitive" the classic film that captured our hearts of a little boy romping through a glorious Coney of yesteryear's 1950's.

From 'Save Coney Island':
Save Coney Island will continue to pressure the City to buy as much land as possible for outdoor amusements. We will push for the landmarking of the historic buildings that this rezoning plan puts at risk. We will fight against the construction of those high-rise towers proposed for the heart of the amusement area. And we will resist the privatization of parkland in Coney Island, insisting that it remain devoted to public use.

We will be launching several initiatives in the coming weeks, and we look forward to your continued support.

This Wednesday, Vox Pop will be hosting a screening of a slate of films about Coney Island:
- The '50s era Coney classic LITTLE FUGITIVE (1953, 80min), in which a little Brooklyn tyke mistakenly thinks he has gunned down his older brother and runs away to Coney Island.
- THE RELEASE OF JAN, a short film by Jordan Roettele
- footage shot from the world-famous Cyclone
- "Don't Shrink Coney! Fix the Plan!", our very own advocacy video

After the screening, we will brief everyone on the latest developments in the fight to Save Coney Island.
