Interesting question.  Ounce in a while when I watch any movie, I normally like to guess what day of the week it was, even though its not important.  Sometimes I wonder if the day is rellavent, because in the book it takes plae in the fourth of July, representing a significant day.  But as for thr movie its hard to say.  Normally I just simply like to pick Wednesday, for some reason.  Because Wednesday, represents the middel of the week, and I normally don't like to pick a day, that starts or ends the week.  We really don't know if Cyrus had a really big scheduale plane, or a big deal of significance for the day, but if not I just simply choose the middle of the wee, for no particular reason.  My guess, is that in the realm of gang acticity, the days of the week have no value for them, like it does for us civilians.

Good question.  Probably a point of inconsistency during filming.  They didn't anticipate guys like us crawling into the negatives with a microscope to examine every possible detail that could be examined.  What I'm referring to is the newspapers that appear very quickly here and there.  Good question.

I say it was on a Tuesday or sometime in the week.  The streets looked too empty to be a Friday or weekend.

It was definitely a weekend night. Why? Because the "rich" kids on the subway were on their way home from some kind of soiree that required them to wear formal attire. Shindigs like that don't get thrown on a weekday.

According to the video game the conclave was on July 12, 1979 because they arrive back in coney on the 13th at 4am.  So, July 12th 1979 was a Thursday.  Of course the movie never mentions a specific day so again this is as close an estimate as I can figure.

It could have been any night during the week. It was obviously summertime, as the trees in the park were in bloom. None of them would have had to get up for school, and I would guess that most gang members wouldn't have jobs. They'd either sponge some cash off their parents, or earn it on the street.

But back to the point about Mercy - Swan had asked her if she liked her life before she said the weekends were good, which could mean one of two things: She was just hanging around the neighborhood doing nothing when she met the Warriors, so it was not a weekend, or she would have been with someone already (and possibly drunk or high, given Swan's comment about not remembering who she had). She wasn't drunk or high, or with anyone else. It was a weeknight.

Or, you could consider how she asked if Swan was going to jump her, with excitement. Maybe she just hadn't met up with anyone yet (although it was kind of late in the night to have not hooked up with someone if she was going to). Maybe she thought it was a rare weeknight opportunity.

All points considered, I am going to guess it was a weeknight.
we knew it has nothing to do with the movie from wot rockstar said he was just pointing out that that is possibly the closest thing he wasnt crossing the game with the movie and yeah i agree if mercy was doing nothing has to be during the week
