Our friends at The North Door are continuing their Free Film Tuesday series this summer starting with an action packed movie. To kick things off right, the Puro Chingon Social Club is screening Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, an Austin filmed movie, on June 11.
The Puro Chingon Social Club was formed by the Puro Chingon Collective, an Austin Art Collective that works in specializing on zines, interactive theater and public art interactions. They’ve created a ChingoZine, which is an art zine that promotes aspiring Latino artists.
It’s also no secret that writer/director Robert Rodriguez, Texas native and former UT student, loves filming in Austin. With the Machete Kills premiere tip toeing around the corner, the free Machete screening is a great way to refresh your memory. Machete, played by Danny Trejo, chronicles his revenge rampage as he seeks the man who betrayed and set him up. The film stars Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez (San Antonio native), Robert De Niro and Cheech Marin.
The North Door is located at 501 Brushy St. The screening will be at the main stage. Doors open at 7 p.m. It’s free and open to the public. For more information and updates visit the Facebook event or the North Door’s website.
