Movieoke has arrived in New York, the latest twist on the karaoke craze.

Den of Cin, a club in the city’s East Village, is fast becoming one of the hottest venues in New York as would-be movie stars perform scenes from their favourite films.

Movieoke has helped the venue become one of the best singles bars in town enabling people to easily break the ice as they grind on stage to Dirty Dancing, for example.

Now other businesses are beginning to wake up to the commercial potential thanks to the DVD format.
