Get ready to time travel back to those great “Dusk til’ Dawn” events of yesterday. The Skyline Drive-in is pleased to announce their first “Pandemonium Picture Show” will kick-off September 16th -17th, 2016 in Shelbyville, Indiana. The weekend celebration of grindhouse and exploitation cinema will offer patrons a sultry smorgasbord of bands, babes and b-movies while camping under the stars.
When the gates open at 5pm on Friday, film fanatics can hit the vending tables in search of movie memorabilia gold and join the fun at the Tape Worms VHS Swap Meet – happening all weekend. Friday night starts swinging and shaking with ribald performances by Rocket Doll Revue Burlesque blazing up the night sky. The late-night cinematic super show will get underway with legendary director Jim Wynorski introducing his cult classic CHOPPING MALL (1986) and his brand new creation SHARKANSAS WOMEN’S PRISON MASSCRE (2016). The all-nighter of insanity will continue with a 35mm projection of Russ Meyer’s SUPER VIXENS (1975), Paul Bartel’s DEATH RACE 2000 (1975) on 16mm and the infamous Michel Levesque mash-up WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS (1971). Breakfast will be available in the morning followed by a brief siesta for the weak.
Saturday blasts into high gear with musical performances by DUSTY BOOZE & THE BABY HATERS and BIGFOOT featuring lead singer/actor Jett Bryant (DEAR GOD NO!, FRANKENSTEIN BIKERS). These hard rocking super-groups from Atlanta, Georgia will be supporting the new vinyl record release of tunes from the film FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS. The rocking continues with the phantasmagoric sounds of local heroes BIZARRE NOIR from Indianapolis, Indiana and a CD release party from Kentucky “Cow Punk” legends NINE POUND HAMMER.
Saturday night kicks off another outrageous movie marathon with Jim Wynorski’s THE LOST EMPIRE (1984) and CAMEL SPIDERS (2011). Next up is the drive-in debut of FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS (2016) with writer/director James Bickert and actors Jett Bryant, Ellie Church and Jim Stacy in attendance. Late night at Pandemonium Picture Show gets “down n dirty” with I DRINK YOUR BLOOD (1970) and a 35mm print of the sleaze classic ILSA SHE WOLF OF THE SS (1975). Those who can survive the non-stop onslaught of depravity will be treated to a secret lost 35mm Film from The Skyline Drive-In vaults!
“Pandemonium Picture Show is a celebration of all those late night drive-in movies where anything can happen on the screen. These are movies that don’t follow any rules and deserve to be shown on the big drive-in screen once again. These genres are alive and well and for two days they will dominate the Skyline Drive-In Theater,” says Joe Gaudin., Skyline Drive-In owner.
Pandemonium Picture Show will be the biggest and baddest exploitation film celebration on planet earth so don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the original members of this historic party!
