I drove past the New Beverly at about 8:30 and was surprised to see a line around the block. My eyebrow raised, I looped around so I could see the marquee. Quentin Tarantino Presents. Oh, right — the Grindhouse Festival. Movies from his collection, blah blah blah. Look, I enjoy QT’s movies, but I am not generally very impressed by them. Though I actually think it’s pretty cool that he wants his fans to see the movies that
he rips off influence him creatively.
But why the line? I figured it out when I got home and looked at the picture (click for huge) I took out my car window. Sneak Peak. Checking the website, I see that tickets for this mystery movie go on sale at 9:45 for an 11:00 showing. I assume it’s a preview of Grindhouse. If any readers were there, will you drop me an email and let me know how the show was? (I’m more interested in it from an event viewpoint, but I’d also like to know if you like the movie.)
In closing, a photo I took of the people waiting in line:
(OK, you can’t see them, but I thought it looked pretty cool.)
