Can you take it? Join us on this once-in-a-lifetime journey back to the grindhouse.
They don’t exist anymore, but there used to be disreputable movie theaters in all major cities that showed double and triple features of low-budget genre films. These theaters could be spooky and intense places, catering mostly to emotionally damaged solitary men. Strange things happened in these decrepit, dark spaces, which served as anarchic dream palaces for freaks of all stripes. Curator Joel Shepard has been collecting grindhouse horror, softcore sex, and action movie trailers from the 70s and early 80s for decades. Many of these films could never be made today. Tonight he presents a rollicking and sometimes disturbing program of the best of the best.
All killer, no filler, and everything on real celluloid 35mm film!
