42nd Street Forever Volume 5: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema On DVD!

Out on DVD is a great party DVD: 42nd Street Forever, Volume 5: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. First of all, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Texas seems like the coolest of all possible movie palaces. Customers are served food and beer and occasionally there are wild festivals, like ones devoted to Quentin Tarantino and a salute to exploitation movies of the '70s. This trailer collection is from their own vaults and offers a staggering array of grindhouse coming attractions heralding kung fu epics like Sting Of The Dragon Masters; weird sexploitation like Chatterbox about a talking vagina; other sleaze greats like Caged Virgins, Pretty Maids All In A Row (starring Rock Hudson), The Devil Within Her (with Joan Collins); and then weird-ass kiddie movies like Magic Christmas Tree, Pinocchio’s Birthday Party and The Fabulous World Of Jules Verne. The set includes a wonderful feature about the theater and audio commentary with Alamo owner Tim League and programmers Lars Nisen and Zack Carlson.
