Schlock-Wire: Screening Schedules for GONE WITH THE POPE and THE EVIL DEAD From Grindhouse Releasing! writes:
Here's some good news for American schlock fans who enjoy see­ing their cho­sen fare in a the­ater — Grindhouse Releasing has just announced some ambi­tious screen­ing sched­ules for Gone With The Pope and The Evil Dead. Gone has been build­ing some seri­ous buzz since its L.A. debut and The Evil Dead is, of course, a can’t-miss clas­sic for fans of gonzo hor­ror flicks.

GONE WITH THE POPE was shot in 1975 but remained unfin­ished at the time of Duke Mitchell’s death in 1981. The film reels sat in his son’s garage until Grindhouse Releasing own­ers Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski offered to take a shot at piec­ing the movie together. Murawski took charge of the restora­tion and spent 15 years giv­ing Mitchell’s low-budget movie an A-list treat­ment in between edit­ing Sam Raimi’s SPIDER MAN 1, 2 & 3, DRAG ME TO HELL, and THE HURT LOCKER.

Murawski will travel to Copenhagen to intro­duce GONE WITH THE POPE at the CPH PIX Film Festival this month. He will also attend a fes­ti­val screen­ing at George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in May.

Meanwhile, Grindhouse Releasing reports suc­cess with its ongo­ing North American tour fea­tur­ing Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD. The hor­ror clas­sic will screen April 3 at the Alamo Drafthouse in WInchester, Va., and April 10 at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes in San Antonio, Tx., on a triple bill with EVIL DEAD 2 and ARMY OF DARKNESS.

EVIL DEAD is a movie that will never die,” said David Szulkin, head of the­atri­cal book­ings for Grindhouse Releasing. “Thanks to Landmark Theatres, the Alamo Drafthouse, and other exhibitors, we’ve been able to bring the movie back to the fans who love it. Recent screen­ings of EVIL DEAD at the Nu Art Theatre in Los Angeles, the Alamo in North Austin, and other venues were sold out com­pletely. The movie will con­tinue to play through the end of 2010.”
