‘Guilty Pleasures’ Marathon In Lower Hudson Valley Will Showcase Old-School 3D Movies
I've written before about how I'm a big movie geek, and crazy, insane, schlocky movies from the '70s and '80s are my jam. So when I hear that the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers is putting together their annual "Guilty Pleasures" marathon, I'm paying attention. And this year, the marathon has a theme.
All five movies in the marathon will be presented in glorious 3D. Now, yes, you can go to a current movie now and there's a decent chance it will be shown in 3D, but these are from an era when 3D was almost always a cheesy gimmick, when it was mostly just to make stuff pop out at you during horror movies. The Drafthouse is celebrating that with a pretty crazy selection of films, some of which are very rarely shown in 3D these days.
First, there's an obscure one, called Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. Then, they're following it up with horror icon Jason Voorhees with Friday the 13th Part III 3-D (this is the one where Jason actually gets the hockey mask). Jaws 3-D is next, the third Jaws movie where the shark terrorizes a water park - it's very silly. That's followed by Amityville 3-D, and then finally the whole thing wraps up with another obscure one, Love In 3D.
The whole thing sounds awesome, and definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of weird '80s cinema. Tickets are going fast, but you can still get them through the Drafthouse's website.
