Midnight Grind returns to the New Beverly Cinema at midnight on Saturday, June 13th, with a special tribute to our adult film legend Marilyn Chambers. We’ve put together an amazing program with rare prints of the first two classics Chambers did for the Mitchell Brothers in San Francisco, BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR (1972) and RESURRECTION OF EVE (1973). We’ll also have some special guests in attendance, along with a selection of trailers and other surprises. This will be another incredible flashback to the golden age of adult cinema, and a tribute to one of the original goddesses of XXX and a talented actress who left us way too soon. Join us as we once again turn back the clock to the days when adult films were actually shown in theaters!
If we continue to draw an audience this will remain a semi-regular midnight series presenting rare 35mm prints of classic 1970’s XXX films. We’ve shown biker films, women in prison films, kung fu, Italian zombies, gore classics… and now we present the missing piece of the classic 42nd Street film experience. Here’s your chance to see golden-age adult films projected on the big screen as they were meant to be seen, surrounded by other fans and freaks. Since the rise of home-video and the internet the viewing of adult films has largely become a lonely solo pursuit, but there was a time when it was a social experience shared with others (which, we admit, could occasionally be somewhat bizarre and brain-damaging). We think it’s time to bring porn out of the privacy of the home and back into theaters where it belongs. So shut down your PC, unplug that DVD player, and come out to the New Beverly on Saturday for the full vintage porn experience!
Bring a date, bring yo’ mama, bring a dirty old man… fun for all! Happy endings not guaranteed, but always a possibility.
All of this for only $7.00, in the company of a crowd of enthusiastic fellow fans and assorted maniacs & perverts.
