Welcome to NYC GRINDHOUSE - the only group on Meetup.com that deals specifically with the Exploitation Film Genre. We'll be watching old classics such as Russ Meyer's 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!' and Jack Hill's 'Coffy', the film that launched sexy Pam Grier into the spotlight, as well as new Grindies like Tarantino's 'Death Proof' and my recent favorite, 'MACHETE'!

When summer comes, we'll take a few weekend road-trips to check out the few remaining DRIVE-INs in NY - the closest one is less than 2 hours drive from Midtown, Madhattan! As well, I'll be hosting 'Drive-In Double Features' on my rooftop in gritty Hell's Kitchen. If you have any questions, please email me at Grindmaster@NYCGrindhouse.com, or call/text me @ (347) 523-3937.

We'll also be checking out special Midnight Screenings @ the famous Sunshine theatre on East Houston Street, as well as other exploitation screenings in and around Badhattan.

FINALLY, as the original 'Grindhouses' were named after the now defunct burlesque theaters located on 42nd Street in New York City, where 'bump n' grind' dancing and striptease were featured, we'll visit some of the remaining burlesque and vaudeville venues in NYC for a bit of naughtiness. . .

Check out Ed Barnas's BURLESQUE CALENDAR!

Feel free to contact us at Grindmaster@NYCGrindhouse.com / (347) 523-3937!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
