As we're sure you're well aware, the time has come once again to grind the house as we like to say over here at Kung Fu Grindhouse. Before I get too lexically clever lets take a look at what's on the platter for March 17th at The Sunset...
First up at 6pm is Awful Hour, that special time of the evening when we scrounge up something painful from the VHS age...
Next at 7pm you'll find yourself transported back through time to 1986 when BMX bikes were all the rage and skinny jeans not yet "ironic." Cru Jones is a small town kid with a paper-route. Will his awesome pedaling skills and heartwarming community support stand up to those big city goon riders? Find out in RAD!
Then at 8:30 we have an offbeat little tale about a man who must avenge his brother's mysterious death in Thailand. Sounds more than a little like a popular film from 1988, but with the inclusion of the awkward Loren Avedon and of Billy Blanks as the baddie, King of the Kickboxers offers more than a few twists, turns and opportunities for hilarity.
So, without further ado, get your ass to The Sunset on March 17th!
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.
