“GRINDHOUSE FOR CHARITY” LAUNCHES IN TORONTO
Home Grown Horror Comes to Projection Booth with a Fright Nights Double Bill in True Grindhouse Style on Saturday, July 7th
—-MESSAGE FROM HENRY ROLLINS—-
Toronto, ON (Wednesday, June 27, 2012) – FANGORIA PRESENTS FRIGHT NIGHTS AT PROJECTION BOOTH is giving genre fans two films for the price of one this Saturday, July 7, 2012 at 8pm with home grown grindhouse flicks IF A TREE FALLS and KILL from directors Gabriel Carrer (IN THE HOUSE OF FLIES starring Henry Rollins, Ryan Barrett) and Chad Archibald (NEVERLOST). Half the proceeds collected from the evening will go to the Henry Rollins fronted international charity “Drop in the Bucket.”
This one night only event will mark the Toronto theatrical debuts of both films. “This is the ONLY time the public will get to see this pair of films on the big screen, and they will be shown in the way they are meant to be seen: as a double bill at Projection Booth- a real grindhouse cinema!“ says Archibald.
Both Gabriel Carrer and Chad Archibald will be in attendance alongside cast and crew. Hosted as always by Fangoria and Planet Fury scribe Kelly Michael Stewart and generously supported by Fangoria and Suspect Video, the evening promises prizes, beverages and lots and lots of blood.
Proceeds from the event will go directly to charity in support of efforts to bring safe drinking water to war ravaged countries. “Drop in the Bucket is a Los Angeles based water and sanitation charity with field offices in Uganda and South Sudan. I had the pleasure of directing their spokesperson Henry Rollins on my next feature “House of Flies” and I was really impressed by what they are accomplishing under very difficult circumstances,” explains Carrer.
“Each month Projection Booth designs a fun, film themed event to benefit a worthy local cause. This month we not only get to expand our reach globally by raising awareness for an important international initiative, but we get to do so while also supporting rising indie film talent. It’s a win-win-win!,” says Projection Booth co-owner Nadia Sandhu.
Recent events at Projection Booth have benefitted the Toronto Environmental Alliance, The David Suzuki Foundation, MS Society and Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
