Event Type: Screening
Cult-film scholar Christian Divine trucks in with his CAR-KINO CULT presentation, a cavalcade of skull-pulverizing clips on the uniquely American phenomenon of the Drive-In Movie. The final frontier of guerrilla showmanship, drive-ins exploited a lurid repertoire of Hollywood actioners and independent grindhouse fare. The activity was ritualized around the automobile, and the romance of expansive viewing under the stars was counter-pointed by violence and copious sex on the super-wide screen (and in the back seats).

Representative titles like Billy Jack, Smokey and the Bandit, Wild Angels, Blood Feast, Night Call Nurses, and Destroy All Monsters are organized into a prototypical Saturday-night al fresco experience, compressing years of film- and car-culture into Christian’s wildly entertaining—and obsessively researched—lecture-demo.

Free popcorn, cheap beer, and lots more!!
