A Look Inside The Village Gate



Ever wonder what the inside of The Village Gate looked like? Maybe you didn’t know that LPR now stands in the same building that was once the legendary music venue, The Village Gate. But if you ever wished you could have been inside that iconic venue, that stands along spots like The Largo, CBGBs, and many others as some of the US’s most legendary musical hotbeds, watch the 1961 Allen Baron film Blast of Silence. You get a fleeting glimpse of the outside at Bleecker St, then an extended scene featuring what it was like to hang out inside the Gate.

The above clip gives a look inside The Village Gate from the film Blast of Silence, which was recently rereleased through The Criterion Collection.
