THE BLAXPLOITATION TRIPLE FEATURE at Super-8 Movie Madness September 3rd in St. Louis
All you jiveass cornpone peckerwoods head down to the Way Out Club on Tuesday September 3rd for Super-8 Movie Madness featuring the Blaxploitation Triple Feature! The Blaxploitation film era has had an enormous impact on American cinema and culture and its influence can still be seen today. If you dig black culture, music, and lingo from the 70’s you’ll have a chance to take in a triple threat of urban cinema presented on Super-8 sound film projected on a big screen with condensed (average length: 17 minutes) versions of three iconic Blaxploitation classics: Pam Grier in COFFY, Richard Roundtree in SHAFT, and Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson in THAT MAN BOLT!
The non- Blaxploitation films we’re showing on September 3rd are: John Carpenter’s DARK STAR, Gil Lamb in the comedy short BABY MAKES TWO, the sexy caveman spoof WHEN WOMEN HAD TAILS, Abbott and Costello in MIDGET CAR MANIACS, NOSFERATU, Angie Dickenson in Brian DePalma’s DRESSED TO KILL, a Roger Corman double feature of BUCKET OF BLOOD and THE WASP WOMAN, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, the Hammer Sci-fier QUATERMASS AND THE PIT, and the nudity-filled 1974 sci-fi spoof FLESH GORDON!… Cover charge is a mere $3.00 and the show begins at 8pm. We’ll have lots of posters and T-Shirts and stuff to give away. The Way Out Club is located at 2525 Jefferson Avenue in South St. Louis (corner of Jefferson and Gravois). There are yummy Way-Out pizzas available.
