Grindhouse (2007)

Directed by
Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino & more

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.
