Coffy & Foxy Brown
The New Beverly's two-month Grindhouse festival officially ended on May 1, but they're screening an awesome double-bill: Coffy and Foxy Brown. If only they'd screen Cleopatra Jones along with these films, you'd have God's perfect trio of sexy, ass-kicking blaxploitation flicks.

WHEN: Weds., May 2 - Thurs., May 3
WHERE: The New Beverly: 7165 Beverly Blvd. (1 block West of La Brea Ave.)

Japanese Video Art
