Welcome back to Kung Fu Grindhouse this January 21st, 2013 for a special night of lunacy.
At 6pm Phill brings you the latest from the VHS trash heap.
At 7pm we have Skatetown USA. Among the elite, but very small clique of late 70's and early 80's disco themed extravaganzas there was only one that featured the up and coming talents of Scott Baio and Patrick Swayze. Noxious comedy and roller-rivalry abound in this rare gem of cultural offal.
And finally at 8:30 it's Challenge of the Tiger in which two secret(ish) agents battle Communists for possession of a formula that just might sterilize the male population.Bruce Le and Richard Harrison may seem an unlikely duo, but their combined techniques will prove devastating to the Axis of Idiocy, and to your sense of taste. We'll see you at The Sunset on January 21st for a new year's Kung Fu Grindhouse opener!
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.
