On a rainy Wednesday night, following a special screening of their hit film ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL, Steve “Lips” Kudlow, Robb Reiner and G5 played a live set in the ornate main auditorium to a sold out crowd which included Chris Martin of Coldplay and model Helena Christensen. The 20 minute set included “This is Thirteen”, “666” and “Metal on Metal”. Lips exclaimed to an overjoyed crowd that the Village East “is the weirdest place we’ve ever played”.
Located 10 blocks north of sister theater, the Angelika Film Center, the Village East Cinema is proud to offer an eclectic mix of mainstream and art programming as well as special events like ANVIL.
