Quentin Tarantino film festival coming to the drive-in


Quentin Tarantino drive-in

Quentin Tarantino’s current filmmaking hiatus has allowed him to venture into the podcast world and raise his son, meaning fans won’t be seeing the elusive 10th and final film any time soon. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to see some of your favorites real soon–in a rare format no less: at a drive-in film festival on glorious 35 mm!

The Mahoning Drive-In in Lehighton, PA will be hosting a three-day film festival of some of QT’s greatest hits on one of the biggest such screens in the country.

Exhumed Films and The Mahoning Drive-In Theater present the second weekend dedicated to the king of cinematic cool, Quentin Tarantino, with TARANTINO-A-GO-GO on September 30th to October 2nd!  Five Tarantino classics plus two secret features that inspired the films being shown, plus vintage themed trailers from the Exhumed archive!  It’s three nights of stylish switcheroos, snappy patter and virtuosic violence, all on 35mm!”

The lineup:

September 30: Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Jackie Brown (1997)

October 1: Death Proof (2007) and Inglourious Basterds (2009)

October 2: The Hateful Eight (2015)

The first two nights will turn into triple features, with each pair accompanied by a surprise bonus feature that shares their DNA.

For those thinking, What, no Pulp? No Kill Bill? Those films were featured at the drive-in’s first “Tarantino-a-Go-Go!” in 2021, with a lineup that also included True Romance, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and bonus features.

Founded in 1948, The Mahoning Drive-In hosts dozens of events throughout the season, all projected on 35 mm–a major perk for purists, of which Tarantino is certainly one.

Will you be attending the event? Which Quentin Tarantino movie would you want to see on the big outdoor screen?
