Hey folks, Harry here... This is going to be the most kickass premiere at the Paramount in the history of kickass premiere's at the Paramount. The only shame is - it is the Paramount. Don't get me wrong, I love the Paramount. And this isn't a - it should've been at the Alamo Drafthouse bid. The Alamo is the closest thing to a Grindhouse we have. In Austin, there were 3 main Grindhouses. We had the RITZ THEATRE - the coolest of the joints or so my dad tells tale. Then there was THE CAPRI - which is where the Hard Rock was here in town. Then the last of the Austin Grindhouses was THE STATE where I saw double bills in the era of THE MACK & SUPERFLY, tons of Kung Fu bills and films like SCHLOCK and many others. The STATE still has a screen, but this event is about putting as many of you in seats as humanly possible - and the Paramount is going to feel like the coolest fucking GRINDHOUSE ever on this magical night! The ushers are going to be a bit of a trip on this night... But ya know what? You can not only have BEER, but mixed drinks too! Though - at 3 hours, I don't know how much... wait - that's right - there is allegedly an intermission. Heh. Anyway - the screen
