Film review books may be a dime a dozen, but how many include the actual experience of witnessing the movie in a theatre? This one does. Zine editor and online columnist Nick Cato shares his time growing up in seedy NY and NJ theatres, and how these screenings helped to shape opinion of the movies. Whether one of his beloved local theatres in Staten Island, NY, or at a double feature at the infamous 42nd Street in Times Square during its heyday, audiences were always lively and outspoken. Part memoir, part film criticism, Suburban Grindhouse looks at the audiences as much as it is a book about exploitation movies themselves. For almost a decade, Nick Cato chronicled his favourite experiences at the popular Cinema Knife Fight website. His column was a favourite and gained a loyal following. Suburban Grindhouse collects these columns with updates and plenty of bonus material, including interviews.
