The Grindhouse Film Festival

Join us on Tuesday, January 20th, as the Grindhouse Film Festival returns to LA's New Beverly Cinema with a special Inauguration Day event. In recognition of the inauguration of our first bi-racial president we'll start the evening with a screening of DR. BLACK, MR. HYDE, in which Bernie Casey injects himself with an experimental drug that turns him from a mellow, benevolent African-American doctor by day into a crazed, evil white man by night! Following this, in tribute to the Barack and Michelle Obama "fist bump" heard round the world, will be the rarely screened BLACK FIST from 1975. Both films will be projected from original 35mm prints and the evening will also include a reel of exploitation film trailers.

The event starts at 7:30pm, and admission for the two features plus a reel of rare exploitation trailers and our world-famous free raffle is still only $8.
