Quentin Tarantino’s popular QT Fest rolls again, starting in just a few days. And, for the most part, the special screenings will happen at the famous Alamo Drafthouse Downtown. BUT, for one of the nights, it’s going to be a special, outdoor Rolling Roadshow event. This means a double feature screening outside, under the stars. It’s a great double bill, a pair of films busting at the seams so they couldn’t fit inside a theater. The special outdoor evening of QT Fest will happen Tuesday, April 25, at the Glenn (part of live music venue The Backyard). The two films are:
The Savage Seven (1968), directed by Richard Rush and Hollywood Man (1976), directed by Jack Starrett
Here is how the Alamo Drafthouse describes the upcoming event:
Quentin returns to the Alamo this spring for QT 7 – a look back at the best films he’s programmed over the last six festivals, all in one amazing smorgasbord of awesomeness! Crime films, trash films, westerns, kung-fu epics, splatter films, mondo films, drug films, lederhosen films – he’s shown it all, and there’s no champion of cinema’s seedy, unsung underbelly quite like Quentin. His programming and detailed, enthusiastic introductions have become a film school in and of themselves, especially for those who rarely get out of the multiplex. Join us for a special outdoor screening at The Glenn (a natural ampitheatre located behined THE BACKYARD) for a redux of the very first double-bill that ever played at QT FEST: Richard Rush’s THE SAVAGE SEVEN and Jack Starrett’s THE HOLLYWOOD MAN.
What this blurb doesn’t tell you is that you can expect some VERY special guests to pop up in attendance. Get more details on the films, the fest, and how to attend on the official Web site.
