The shuttered and historic Cheyenne Diner is getting one last hurrah on 33rd and 9th before it makes the move over to Red Hook next month. But fans of the diner shouldn't get too excited at the sight of that re-lit neon sign. The diner is currently being used as a location for the film "An Englishman in New York", a biopic about Quentin Crisp—a British writer, actor, 'raconteur', and 70's gay icon—starring John Hurt and (possibly) Cynthia Nixon.
According to a tipster that spotted the scene, the cars date from the 80's, and if you take a look at Hurt, he's wearing a bright purple tie and shirt, what could possible be a velvet blazer, and an incredible wide brimmed fedora. No word on if they've at least fired up those grills once again for the crew.
