Remembered fondly by the folks at Central Cinema and plenty others as one of the best times you can have at the movies, Grindhouse returns to the big screen for a three-night engagement… plus a reprise of the 2019 Grindhouse Grind-out (a filmmaking contest directly influenced by the film) on Friday night at 7pm!
An homage to exploitation B-movie thrillers that combines two feature-length segments into one double-bill designed to replicate the grind house theatergoing experience of the 70s and 80s. In Death Proof, a psycho named Stuntman Mike stalks and kills beautiful women with his car. In Planet Terror, a small-town sheriffs’ department has to deal with an outbreak of murderous, infected people called “sickos.” A gun-legged woman named Cherry and her martial arts-wielding partner take on the zombie army.
