Growing up in McComb, Mississippi (go Tigers!), our grindhouse was the "Ren Drive-In" in the seventies, before it was torn down, to make way for something...
...something that things that are torn down usually are torn down to make way for.
I dunno, I haven't been back there in a while. Ask my dad he'll probably know.
The point is, at one point every town, especially small towns had a place like this and in big cities they were former downtown movie palaces called "Grindhouses".
And while I was a little too young to see "Satan's Cheerleaders" when it came to town on a double bill with "It's Alive", I have seen a bunch of these things on video and in revival houses since.
I hope this movie is success, so Tarantino and Rodriguez can revisit this in a couple of years with the full-blown feature versions of the trailers in this thing that they had Rob Zombie, Edgar Wright, and Eli Roth do.
