Grindhouse in a town without a grindhouse
Grindhouse, a movie tailor-made to be seen at a drive-in (OK, a grindhouse too), opens tomorrow. Most likely due to unseasonably warm temperatures, the Portland metro area's only drive-in, the 99 West, is already open for the season. What will it be showing this weekend?
Wild Hogs and Premonition.
As far as I know, Portland doesn't have a down-on-its-luck movie palace (AKA a grindhouse) that will be showing it either.
Damn. Looks like I'll be catching Grindhouse at Pioneer Place, which means the experience will be the emotional equivalent of watching the Super Bowl on a 12-inch tv with rabbit ears. Lame!
