As I wrote in a brilliantly titled piece in the Mercury's Film section this week ("Money, Cash, Woes"), the Hollywood Theatre's Polyester Pulp: The '70s Crime Series showcases some of that decade's most underrated flicks. Seriously, look at this trailer for Charley Varrick, which, tomorrow night, kicks off the series:
After the jump: Trailers for the rest of the series' films—plus info on how you (yes, you) can enter to win a pair of tickets to each of 'em.
The Silent Partner (screens Wed April 17):
The Outfit (screens Wed April 24):
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (screens Wed May 1):
Do those look awesome to you? Of course they do. That's because they're awesome. I can get one person on the guest list for all of those screenings—with a plus one!—so if you want to be that person who gets to see all of those movies on the big screen and in 35mm, email me no later than 5 pm today (Mon April 8). Make sure your subject line is "The last of the independents." I'll pick a winner at 5 and email 'em back sometime around then. Have at!
More info on the series can also be found right here.
