Watch out! It's coming soon to the Drexel near you again! As many of you are aware, the recent SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK brought with it the triumphant return of 35mm film projection to the Drexel's big screen. As part of our agreement to make that happen I promised a late night trailer show as a benefit to help defray the expense of the reinstallation. At midnight Saturday, January 4th that onslaught will begin with three hours of some of your old favorites such as THE GREEN SLIME, WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS and that appetizing Castleberry's barbecue ad, and a treasure trove of long-neglected previews of beach parties and bad girls, superheroes and stewardesses, Kubrick and Hitchcock, swingers and spies, the Troma Team and Russ Meyer, kiddie pix and cat fights. The suggested donation at the door is $5, but like any annoying fundraiser, I'll badger you at every opportunity to consider adding to that amount as you exit.

My toughest challenge with this is reining myself in and keeping it to a measly three hours. My first list of "must show" trailers ran about 6 to 8 hours. After 2001's 12 hour SCI-FI TRAILERTHON, I'm certain that our Marathoid faithful are up to that challenge, but in the interest of attracting some fresh faces and letting the Drexel staff get some rest, this will be kept to a reasonable length. Think of it as a trailerthon for trailerthons to come. Similar events in the near future are likely to include the Best Picture winners of the last 60 years around Oscar time, Elvis Meets Russ Meyer, sexploitation, rock'n'roll (it really wants to be 12 hours), car craziness (to coincide with the street rods coming to town in the summer), a demented adults-only kids show all-nighter, an all-night endurance test of jaw-droppingly bad rock'n'roll movies, shorts and trailers, and more variety Trailer Trash nights like this one. All on glorious 35mm film!

As I said, we're hoping to attract some fresh blood to the Marathons with this and subsequent trailer late nights. Please consider dragging your 'Thon reluctant friends and relations along to this to sample a taste of what they've been missing. Also consider printing copies of the attached flier, correcting the date and time, and inflicting it on the innocent, unsuspecting masses.

Awesome! I'm not close enough to Columbus to be able to make it down for a 3 hour show, but to everyone who attends, have fun!!! I remember Bruce and/or Joe mentioning during the Horror thon that something like this was in the works, and I'm glad to see it's happening so soon.

I'd have loved to attend...
Unfortunately, I had to be at work until midnight, in Dayton - the earliest I could have gotten there would have been 2am, and I just couldn't justify making the drive at that point.

How did it go? Good enough for another one in the near future? If so, I'll try to make it to that one!

There's a possibility they may move the time earlier, so check here for a confirmation from Bruce to be sure.

D'oh! That's the weekend of the Cleveland marathon - which I JUST today got cleared to go to.

So..... Cleveland, Trailer Trash... Cleveland, Trailer Trash... Cleveland, Trailer Trash?

I don't know. Guess I'll leave it up to my friends. :)

Here's an article that's a good summary of where things are at this point and germane to our 35mm resurrection.
