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 and around New York - the closest one is less than 2 hours drive from Midtown, Madhattan!

Our favorite is the MAHONING DRIVE-IN in Lehighton, Pennsylvania. Yeah, that's right. It's in PA. Under a 2.5 hour drive from Times Square. Why? Because they only show 35 mm prints and you can camp overnight at the drive-in!! How AWESOME IS THAT?!

If you have any questions, please call or text me @ (347) 523-3937 (Grindmaster@NYCGrindhouse.com).

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. . .
