SUNDAY 03.04.07
WHAT: Quentin Tarantino Presents the Los Angeles Grindhouse Festival 2007
WHO: Quentin Tarantino
WHEN: Check show times.
WHERE: New Beverly Cinema
WHY: According to a press release: “The event will be a showcase for the risque films exploiting sex, violence and extreme subject matter from the 1970s that inspired Grindhouse, with prints directly on loan from Tarantino’s private collection, many of which are unavailable on DVD and have not screened for the public in theatres in decades. With double and triple features of roughly seven different films in rotation per week, the ground-breaking fest will screen over 50 historic films throughout the eight-week run, all personally selected for audience re-discovery by the director.”

In other words, it’ll be an amazing glimpse into a twisted mind.
