GRINDHOUSE A GO-GO: YOUR GUIDE TO REPERTORY ACTION FOR THE WEEK OF 11/25… COME GET SOME SUGAR, BABY!

Time to jump in the Charger, hit the pavement, and get your ass to your local repertory theatre and give them some coin for a cool as hell flick. Or, if you’re lucky, a double feature to punch your mush with cool. It’s time for a ride around the nation on the lookout for vintage badass. Welcome to…

 

GRINDHOUSE A GO-GO!

 

 

IN LOS ANGELES

 

AT THE NEW BEVERLY

 
The New Beverly is starting off the week paying tribute to the late Tony Scott. I always called Tony Scott the master of visual chaos. His films had a violent heartbeat; pumping out classic action scenes from impressive aerial dogfights to Mexican stand-offs that ended in bloodshed, from vampires to vengeance, and the New Beverly is paying tribute to both with THE HUNGER and TRUE ROMANCE on November 25th and 26. Appearing SUNDAY ONLY is the great Joe Carnahan (NARC) who will be paying tribute to his mentor and friend.

AT THE MUSIC BOX THEATRE

 

 
“In this 1975 film from the British comedy group Monty Python, the gallant King Arthur gallops off, on foot, to recruit bold knights to help him in his quest for the Holy Grail. Along the way, they encounter such horrific obstacles as the dreaded Black Knight, a richly-accented French castle guard, the legendary cowardice of brave Sir Robin, a voracious Killer Bunny and the mighty Tim. This print is remastered to the highest definition ever.” Music Box Theatre website

IN NEW YORK

 

AT THE SUNSHINE CINEMA

 
On November 30th and December 1st:
 

 
“Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose “old dark house” and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Janet Leigh, the film’s ill-fated heroine who is victimized in the now-notorious “shower scene.” Trust us, the tension in this film has never been duplicated, thanks to the master’s superb direction, the crisp black and white cinematography and Bernard Herrmann’s unsettling score. Vera Miles, Martin Balsam, John Gavin and John McIntire co-star. Screenplay by Joseph Stefano, based on the novel by Robert Bloch.” – Sunshine Cinema website
