Grindhouse Cinemas are back on 42nd Street, sort of…

01 42nd

Before heading to Philly for Cinedelphia I stopped off in New York for a few days, this was my first time back in the city for a few years and of course I took a walk down 42nd Street. What I found was something that really made my day, in the simplest way possible the grindhouse cinemas were back on the street, at least in picture form. Yes covering a section of work boarding was a nearly life size photo recreation of what the street looked like back in 1987, complete with a series of incredible theatre marquees. I still don’t fully understand why this was there, now that the street has been cleaned up so much I can’t tell if this is meant to show you how bad the street was, or if it’s a wistful look back to all the character that used to infuse the area.  Either way it was so great to stumble on, watch the video below and take a look at the pictures to get a slice of the 42nd Street experience.

And if you like the picture you can actually get a print from the original via Battman Studios right here. Only $25 and it’s 5-feet long, which seems like a great deal!

An update on The Duke!


Hello everyone, we wanted to let you know that we’ve decided to part ways with our current venue, this takes effect immediately which means our 100th night was our last time there.

But it’s not the end of The Duke, we’re going to take a break and concentrate on DukeFest which is still scheduled to take place in the last week of June. We’re looking for a new venue now which we’ll use for two of the festival nights; we’ll let you know in due course what’s happening with that.

We’ve also got several other events which we should be taking part in over the Summer, so there’s still lots going on. After that we’ll look into getting a permanent new home and taking things from there.

As always thank you all so much for your support and for always coming along to check out what we’re showing, we couldn’t do it without you!

Evrim & Alex.
