Peaches Christ presents Pam Grier Double Feature feat. Pam Grier Live
Sleazy, violent, and out of control: Coffy (1971) has come to epitomize the high-water mark of '70s "Blaxploitation" cinema, as much for its gratuitous jive/cleavage/explosions as for its leading lady, the singular Pam Grier. No one looked quite as good with an afro on her head and a shotgun in her hand than Ms. Grier, and she never looked better or kicked more ass than as the eponymous Coffy. After an afternoon screening of Jackie Brown (1997), a Peaches Christ pre-show, and a screening of the film that made her famous, Pam Grier will appear in person for a Q&A and autograph signing — a chance at last to meet the legend herself. $25. Info.
Sunday, March 18, 6 p.m. - 11 p.m.
