THE B MOVIE ROAD TOUR
The 1950s and 1960s, drive-ins began to spread like wildfire, increasing to more than 4,000 locations. The new sites may have begun as a venue to watch films, but interestingly, the main films that were shown were mostly considered to be B films. Patrons enjoyed them regardless and remained enthralled with what they saw – so much so that the drive-in became a part of American culture where people came together to socialize with each other. It was an experience all of its own making and is today is considered an important part of Americana.
Today there are fewer than 400 drive-ins are currently in operation across the United States.
A movie watched under the stars and while breathing in the fresh air. Audience members could even get out of the car to stretch their legs and still hear and see the movie. The environment provided much more freedom than an indoor theater, and people appreciated the intermissions. It was a magical experience and the memory of childhood drive-ins still linger in many peoples memories.
In an attempted to re-ignite that drive-in passion, Polyscope Media Group LLC. in conjunction with The B Movie Celebration and Avery Battles, are announcing the launch of the 2013 B Movie Road Tour.
“Last year I curated the B Movie Celebration and people kept complaining that the location of the Celebration was too far , but wouldn’t it be great to get emerging and classic B Movies in their town” Says Battles “This was our inspiration for the Road Tour, our goal pure and simple is to making films and film going fun again”
The Road tour heads off the first week of July and will initially feature the following line–up.
“The Lost Empire” – 30th Anniversary tour. In a land in a distant past, three beautiful women, members of a lost tribe, battle a madman with diabolical plans to destroy their “Lost Empire.” Directed by Jim Wynorski.
With this lineup, the organizers of the B Movie Road Tour hope to help audiences nation wide re-discover their passion for the B Movie/Drive-in movie experience. As of the date of this release 132 theaters have committed to participating in this years tour including drive-in theaters. And by the way 2013 is the 80th Anniversary of the Drive-In Movie Theatre.

In 100 BLOODY ACRES, brothers Reg and Lindsay Morgan are struggling to keep their organic blood and bone fertilizer business in motion.

Months have passed since their last find, and an important new customer is now waiting on a delivery. When junior partner Reg (Damon Herriman of Justified) stumbles upon 3 travelers stranded on a remote country road, he cooks up a radical solution to their problem, and a way of finally gaining the respect of his bossy big brother (Angus Sampson). But when Reg starts to fall for Sophie, one of the intended victims, things get complicated…

Luckily, Zach’s best friend Lilly might have a lead on a cure, and together with Dan they launch a plan to steal the antidote and save the world. That is, if they can just stay one step ahead of Zach’s ravenous ZOMBIE eXs!
Zombie eXs screened to audience acclaim at 2012’s ZED Fest and the 2012 Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, where festival director Gregory Lamberson stated, *“Zombie eXs may be the most sidesplitting zom com feature since Shaun of the Dead.

Irony has never been so red.”
