FILM | Sin-o-Matic Night


City Newspaper's own Frank De Blase will present a "Sin-o-Matic Night" at the Cinema Theatre (957 S. Clinton Ave.) on Tuesday, September 3, featuring a screening of Russ Meyer's 1965 sexploitation film, "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" The lusty, busty, romp of a flick features three thrill-seeking go-go dancers, Billie, Rosie, and Varla, who meet a young couple in the desert. They kill the boyfriend, kidnap the girlfriend, and scheme on a crippled old letch and his sons, who are supposedly loaded. But the old man is as sinister as the girls, and he has his own plans. "Though psycho-sexually supercharged, it's one of the tamer films — i.e. no nudity — in Meyer's pantheon of boobs, violence, boobs, social commentary, and boobs," per the press release.

The event starts at 8 p.m., and will also feature noir short "Busted Valentine," written by Frank De Blase and animated by David Cowles. Copies of De Blase's new crime noir novel, "Pine Box for a Pin-Up," will be available for signing. Poster artist Doug Mac will be present, and gorgeous gals will show you to your seat. Tickets are $10. For more information, visit, and watch for future B-Movie, film noir, crime drama, and sexploitation films presented by Frank De Blase. Proceeds will help outfit the Cinema Theatre with a new digital projector.
