The UCLA Film & Television Archive will be showcasing “Lady Terminator” and “Sister Street Fighter” on July 26 as it kicks off a summer screening series featuring the strangest, the coolest, and the head-trippiest titles from the American Genre Film Archive’s outlandish collection.
The event is part of the 10-year anniversary celebration of the American Genre Film Archive. Hosted at the Billy Wilder Theater, this event starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26. Tickets are $10, or free for UCLA students.
Based in Austin, Texas, the American Genre Film Archive is one of the best collections of horror, action, exploitation, fantasy and weirdo cult cinema, with a catalogue that is probably best-known to those who frequent any arthouse’s midnight movie shows.
While the project started in 2006 as a hoard of 35mm film prints, the American Genre Film Archive wasn’t officially established as a non-profit until 2009. Since then, it has rapidly grown to contain more than 6,000 film elements. UCLA Film & Television will be hosting more film screenings throughout the summer.
