In which three films and some exhumed VHS trash are screened back to back at the Sunset on August 15th.
THEM! (1958) - 7:00pm - In which atomic radiation causes a bunch of ants to grow to incredible size threatening to usurp mankind's hard won position as most destructive consumers on the planet Earth. This cannot be permitted.
Captain America 2 (1979) - 8:30pm - In which Reb Brown dons Cap's outfit for a tasty romp through idiot-land and a bunch of friendly dogs. Crapping out hanglider and smashing motorbike on waterfall, lots of gunshots all the time and all the bad-guys intentions are broadcast over a public address system just before or just after they occur. Motorcycle helmet and pain means you thought it was TOO SOON FOR A SEQUEL?
Ninja Vengeance (1988) - 10:00pm - In which a white man comes to town and accidentally finds himself saving the Black residents from the Klan and white audience members from their guilty conscience. Fortunately our Magnificent Singular Amigo Samurai just happens to have brought his instructional manuals along for the big fight. Transforming himself into the titular Ninja, he takes vengeance, but not for the selfless reasons you would hope.
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.
