Sneak Preview of Grindhouse Tonight at the New Bev
Don't forget. If you want to see a sneak preview of the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double feature, Grindhouse (Planet Terror = Rodriquez; Death Proof = Tarantino), head over to the New Beverly tonight at 11 p.m. Actually, head over at 9:45 p.m. That's when tickets go on sale, and there's a good chance it will sell out.
If you wanna go in true grindhouse style, I recommend rolling up in a 1970s Dodge Challenger and sneaking in a beer that you open with an audible sigh of pleasure the moment the lights dim.
Be forewarned, Grindhouse runs a full 3 hours, so you won't be getting out of the theater until after 2am., so maybe equip yourself with a Red Bull or something.
Also, bring cash. The New Bev, like the Vista, is old school. They don't take credit cards.
