“On the Bowery” Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray!
The revival tour all started in September of last year. Lionel Rogosin’s classic 1957 docu-drama, On the Bowery, premiered at the Film Forum and was an underground smash. In its initial twelve-day run, Milestone Films, who was responsible for restoring the original release, collected an estimated $41,800 in box office receipts. Not bad for a fringe film dating back five decades.

On the Bowery would return in November for a repeat performance at the Film Forum before hitting the road. There were screenings in more than fifty movie houses across the country. Now that magic is hitting DVD and Blu-Ray video formats.
DVDTown reported last week that On the Bowery: The Films of Lionel Rogosin, Vol. 1 will be released on February 7, 2012. Not in time for the holidays. The two-disc box sets include myriad bonus features from the title film, as well as two other Rogosin classics – Good Times, Wonderful Times and Out.
