GRINDHOUSE on Glorious 35mm!

See GRINDHOUSE how it was meant to be seen…on 35mm at the Astor Theatre.

Watch GRINDHOUSE how it was meant to be seen…on 35mm at Melbourne’s prestigious Astor Theatre.

Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s homage to drive-in double features in the 60s and 70s with two back-to-back cult films that include previews of coming attractions between them. A double-bill of thrillers that recall both filmmakers’ favourite exploitation films. GRINDHOUSE (a downtown movie theatre in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace known for “grinding out” non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies) is presented as one full-length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director.

PLANET TERROR  shows us a view of the world in the midst of a zombie outbreak, while DEATH PROOF, is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife. The films are joined together by clever faux trailers that recall the ’50s exploitation drive-in classics.
