Don't miss our next event at LA's New Beverly Cinema on Tuesday, March 6th, as we pay tribute to director Jack Hill with a double-dose of 1970's exploitation classics featuring hot cheerleaders and tough gang debs. Jack, who has been a good friend to the Grindhouse Film Festival over the years, will be leaving LA in mid-March so please join us and many special guests as we give him a proper sendoff for his upcoming move to the East Coast.
Jack Hill is well known for his many cult hits, from SPIDER BABY to the Pam Grier classics COFFY and FOXY BROWN, and we'll be showing two of our faves next week. SWITCHBLADE SISTERS is the action (and humor) packed story of the Dagger Debs, a tough-as-nails group of teen wildcats who terrorize the city while dealing with rivalries with other gangs, their associated male gang, and each other. An exploitation film that delivers the goods on many levels and really wins audiences over, with a great cast and an incredible script.
THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS tells the tale of a female reporter (Jo Johnston) who joins a cheerleading squad to expose the sexism and exploitation of women in society, and finds that all is not as it seemed at first. With the squad made up of 70's cult faves like Rainbeaux Smith, Colleen Camp and Roasanne Katon, and a dose of Jack Hill's subversive social commentary and humor, this one is a real winner.
The event starts at 7:30pm, and admission for the double feature plus a reel of rare exploitation trailers and a free raffle is still only $8.00.
