Shock & Awe: The Dusk ‘Til Dawn Grindhouse Experience is returning to the Fox Theatre on Saturday, November 28th at 11:30pm. The all night event features six awesome movies all presented on film, including the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and everything from weird 1960’s horror to Blaxploitation Kung Fu and a Canadian Star Wars rip-off!
Did I mention we’re giving away two pairs of tickets to this? Well, we are.
You and your friend/lover/confidant can have two free tickets to Shock & Awe, all you have to do is be one of the first two people to email me the correct answer to our super skill-testing question:
“In what year did the Fox Theatre, formerly known as the Prince Edward change its name to The Fox?”
I’ll even give you a hint, the answer can be found at FoxTheatre.ca
Email email@example.com with your answer and we’ll hook you up.
Still not convinced? Check out the full lineup of films below.
The Shape of Things to Come (1979) – Beyond the earth! Beyond the moon! Beyond your wildest imagination! Jack Palance disco dances with toy robots in Canada’s cosmic “Star Wars” knock off.
Supergirls Do The Navy (1984) – Ron Jeremy, Taija Rai, and Paul Thomas take “serving your country” to a whole new level! The supergirls and the naughty navy team up in a submarine of sin! This sub is equipped with a cockpit!
Satanik (1968) – An old bag sips a “youth potion” and turns from drab to fab, but was the potion created by Satan himself?
Bamboo Gods and Iron Men (1974) – In this Philippino Blaxploitation film, a soul brother on his Hong Kong honeymoon must battle some bad crackers who want to put his Honeymoon action in traction.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) – The classic hits the screen again after a long-overdue absence when a vanload of hippies cross paths with leatherface, his chainsaw and a carnivorous cannibalistic family. Nothing cuts like the original!
