Japanese, Taiwanese movies at Hollywood Theater's Grrrindhahs 2, February 15 and 16.

The Hollywood Theater in Dormont's "Grrrindhahs 2: Pittsburgh's Exploitation Celebration" will feature three Asian movies next weekend: Taiwan's Master of the Flying Guillotine (獨臂拳王大破血滴子) and Japan's Lady Snowblood (修羅雪姫) and Doberman Cop (ドーベルマン刑事). Films shown at grindhouse theaters, says Wikipedia, "characteristically contain large amounts of sex, violence or bizarre subject matter" and the nine films on the 15th and 16th are classic examples. From the event's Facebook page:
From the folks who brought you 13 Hours of Horror and 13 Hours of Sci-Fi, comes a day-long program of drive-in, grindhouse, and exploitation films from the 60s and 70s! So why didn't we call this 13 Hours of Grindhouse? Because it's OVER 14 HOURS!!! Why GRRRINDHAHS? Because that's how rabid movie fans say "grindhouse" in Pittsburgh! Join us on Saturday, February 15, 2014 as we show you, once again, where Tarantino steals all his best ideas!
The movies begin on the 15th at 10:30 am and conclude the next day at 1:30 am. Tickets for individual films are $5, and an all-day pass for all nine is $15. The theater is located at 1449 Potomac Ave. (map) in Dormont and a block south of Potomac Station.
