Upcoming Screenings: December 2011

While many of us discovered Canuxploitation films through late night TV screenings and VHS rentals, there’s still something special about catching a locally produced B-movie classic in the theatre alongside other Canadian film fans. Here’s a selection of classic Canadian B-movie screenings happening soon.

DEATH WEEKEND — 35mm
