This month's movies capture their moments in time. Grindtopia, just like Kung Fu Grindhouse before it, is a very useful anthropological resource.

Of course, that could just be a shameless rationalization of all the outdated fashions and slang you're going to see tonight.

6:00-ish:

BLIND DATE (1984)

Dir: Nico Mastorakis

Fortunately for Jonathan Ratcliff (Joseph Bottoms), 1980's medical technology has the means to cure his psychosomatic blindness, turning him into a bitchin' cyborg who sees through a computer interface. Also fortunately, he embarks on a vacation to Athens to celebrate his new eyes. Less fortunately, they witness a serial-killing cab driver in mid-murder. Also featuring Kirstie Alley, Keir Dullea, Marina Sirtis and Valeria Golino.

8:00-ish:

VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS (1965)

Dir: Bert I. Gordon

Only Bert I. Gordon would adapt H.G. Wells' «The Food Of The Gods And How It Came To Earth» into a beach party movie. Pre-teen biochemistry prodigy «Genius» (little RONNY HOWARD!!) invents a weird serum that turns 60's-style juvenile delinquents (led by a young Beau Bridges) into 30-foot tall giants. There are swinging musical numbers, too. No one will be seated during Toni «Mickey» Basil's cage dance!

9:30-ish:

SCORCHY (1976)

Dir: Howard Avedis

«She's killed a man, been shot at, and made love twice already this evening...and the evening isn't over yet!» Connie Stevens tears 1970s Seattle a new one as Jackie Parker, an undercover DEA agent on a rampage. What better catharsis to end our evening than some vicarious mayhem and senseless violence against a familiar backdrop? Watch the harpoon attack scene and pretend it's aimed at that passive-aggressive barista at Starbucks!

All this plus tasty grub (including $2 OFF ALL BURGERS, because MONDAY!!!) and a special drink menu inspired by tonights film program!

And, as always, Grindtopia is FREE.
