Shock and Awe: Grindhouse Returns

What do the world's first superhero to arise from a pool of toxic nuclear waste, a beachball with claws wreaking havoc on a spaceship, racist cops, and sexual liberation in Amsterdam have in common?

They're all going to be on the big screen at the Fox Theatre this coming Saturday night, as Shock and Awe: The Grindhouse Experience returns for an all-night homage to classic grindhouse films.

An all-nighter marked by a lineup of not-so-serious B-movies brings serious enjoyment, and this unique experience is a way to ensure that we'll be thoroughly entertained on Saturday night, sleeping on Sunday, and groggy enough on Monday. It wouldn't be grindhouse any other way!
