Grindhouse is coming to the Astor

From: user 5.

Hey guys, later in the month for 10 days only at the Astor theater Grindhouse will be playing in its original theatrical cut with fake trailers, scene jumps and the full grindhouse experience. These cuts will not be seen on DVD and did not play in Australian theaters. If you are interested head over to  and RSVP  yes or email me personally.

I have been waiting for almost 18 months to see this in its original form and it would be great to get a group organized to enjoy it with.

Tarantino's and Rodriguez's homage to the trashy drive-in and "grindhouse" double features of the 1970s. Grindhouse was a term reserved for down-at-heel movie theatres that showed D-grade, drive-in-style films, usually with continuous sessions.

The two features are Planet Terror and Death Proof

This EXCLUSIVE presentation is shown exactly as the original version was intended, complete with trailers, "scratches" and intermission. (Scratches are a real-film treat for the DVD-jaded generation.)

A DVD release of the full version is NOT planned. So, here's your chance to finally see this special presentation, on the SuperScreen, in a real-life (but not down-at-heel), double-feature movie palace - The Astor Theatre.

The EXCLUSIVE season will run from Thursday, March 20 to Sunday, March 30.

Kindest Regards,
