What an amazing event..This past Friday at midnight was the screening of Wanda Whips Wallstreet at the New Beverly Cinema in Hollywood. It was so great to see so many fans come out to enjoy some old school stags. I want to thank Midnight Grind , The New Beverly Cinema and all the grindhouse fans that came out and enjoyed the night with us, really impressive turn out!!
Earlier in the evening I was honored to host a small dinner to celebrate the event, and I was joined by a great group of dear friends, and of course Jane Hamilton(Veronica Hart) was our guest of honor. As usual, she was incredibly gracious and sweet.
By the way, the mexican food was great….thank you adam for ordering me that Carne Asada Burrito!
We all headed over to the theater, where there was already a line at the box office of fans who were out to see the film and meet Jane. I was so overjoyed. The film was proceeded by a short introduction by Midnight Grind’s Joe Rubin and a raffle in which many fans received copies of ‘Wanda’ on DVD, some great posters, and other random ephemera.
The decision to show an entire half hour of trailers was absolutely brilliant and in a way, sort of stole the show. I mean, the crowd was absolutely hystercial!!!! I really did love all the trailers, they were great, but if I had to choose my 2 favorites, they would be ‘Joy’ and ‘Every Inch a Lady’……amazing.
The feature was great, lots of laughs and a classic film, by the late and great Chuck Vincent, with some awesome performances from porn’s treasure chest of talent.
ATTENTION GRIND HOUSE THEATERS AROUND THE USA, the DISTRIBIX archives is here, it is alive and it is well!!!
