Weekend watch: Grindfest at the Fargo Theatre


The Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway, may be the art house cinema, but tonight it becomes a grind house. Grindfest, a celebration of campy and classic horror movies returns with a bill that’s bigger than ever.

The reels start rolling at 7 p.m. with a collection of 1940s and ’50s B movie trailers for titles like “Jailbait,” “Marijuana: Assassin of Youth” and Ed Wood’s iconic “Glen or Glenda.” Fargo’s own B girls, Bad Weather Burlesque, take the stage at 8, followed by the main event, “Exploitation Explosion,” a tapestry of ’60s and ’70s sleazy cinema.

Tickets are $8 for this 18-and-older event. (701) 239-8385.
