Synopsis:

Thursday, November 12th – 7:30 PM

Larry Karaszewski Presents: A Salute to Rudy Ray Moore - Double Feature:

DOLEMITE, 1975, Xenon, 90 min.
Super soul brother, Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore), aided by his squad of kung fu hookers, goes up against evil bad-ass Willie Green (D'Urville Martin, who also directed) in this low-budget classic. Peppered with Rudy's famous toasts, martial arts skills and just plain crazy plot twists, DOLEMITE must be seen to be believed.

PETEY WHEATSTRAW, 1977, Xenon, 94 min. Dir. Cliff Roquemore.
Star Rudy Ray Moore plays the title role in this blaxploitation classic. When Petey Wheatstraw dies, the devil offers him a chance to return to earth. The catch: Petey must marry the devil's daughter, the ugliest woman in the world. Costarring Wildman Steve.

Q&A between films with members of the cast/crew of DOLEMITE and the new film BLACK DYNAMITE - plus filmmaker Reginald Hudlin.
