Disinterring the mouldy carcass of film history is what we're all about here at Kung Fu Grindhouse and this February 21st is no exception. Bear witness as we snap off these brittle and decayed apendages for your lip-smacking perusal:
It Happened At the Worlds Fair - 7:00PM - Few people know that The King filmed a movie here in Seatown right down there at Seattle Center. Back then all those buildings were still shiny and full of naive optimism, the Soviets were still a terrifying prospect and riding the monorail didn't require treatment for smoke inhalation.
Terror Vision - 8:30PM - After falling asleep while watching old horror movies with his grandfather, Sherman Putterman discovers that the TV has zapped a giant monster into their home. The monster thrives on junkfood and TV.Woah dude, that's like, a totally deep metaphor, I'm going to need a while to process that one. Pop culture goes literally mad!
Ninja Silent Assassin - 10PM - "Possibly one of Godfrey Ho's more watchable ninja Frankenfilms." Ah hahahahahahahahahahaha!
Bring an extra napkin to the Sunset on February 21st, it's going to get messy.
As promised at our screening of Ip Man earlier this month, the Kung Fu Grindhouse crew is going to head out to the theater and see the sequel, Ip Man 2 this Friday Feb. 4th. We're meeting up at the Metro Cinema in the University District to see the 6:55 show.
But wait it gets better.
If people are into continuing our Grindhouse night on the town after Ip Man, we'll head on down to the College Inn Pub for a couple of beers, then a hike back up the Ave to the Grand Illusion where we'll watch Mako: The Jaws of Death at 11PM
If the showtime or theater for Ip Man 2 changes when the new releases come out this week, we'll update this post to keep you current.
Kung Fu Grindhouse began as an effort to re-expose the badly decayed carcass of exploitation film history to a fresh audience of cinemaphiles. For nine years and counting we've tracked down the tastiest and trashiest forgotten and low-profile films and shown them to our friends in the hope that they will join us in preserving the memories of many a bygone movie era. The purpose of KFG is and always has been to encourage people to revisit and pursue these films on their own and to discover new ones for themselves.
All the films we show are from our personal collection, and we never charge a cover. Usually the third Monday of every month at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard Washington. 6pm till done.
