Grindhouse Triple Feature


Quentin Tarantino is curating a two month retrospective of grindhouse movies at the New Beverly Cinema in Hollywood. He’s using his personal collection of 35mm prints to program a 52-film homage to drive-in cinema and downtown exploitation films. Of interest to Brew readers is the Friday-Saturday March 23rd-24th triple bill. That day he’ll be unspooling Ralph Bakshi’s original Coonskin (1975) along with the X-rated animated Tarzan spoof, Shame Of The Jungle (1975) and the live action comedy anthology Tunnel Vision (1976, which has a short animated segment). This festival is tied into Tarantion’s latest feature Grindhouse. The complete schedule of films is posted on the New Beverly’s website.
