The Secret Cinema presents TRAILER TRASH III in 35mm at Bryn Mawr Film Institute
The Secret Cinema will again follow up their biggest presentations ever when it presents TRAILER TRASH III on the big screen at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Like the original TRAILER TRASH programs this all-new program is a non-stop orgy of rare, original preview “trailers” advertising some of the Secret Cinema’s favorite (and least favorite!) films of the 1960s and ’70s — exploitation, sexploitation, science-fiction, bikers, horror, rock musicals, beach movies, and unclassifiable movies. All will be shown from archival 35mm prints (with several in true, IB Technicolor) on the BMFI’s gigantic screen, along with vintage drive-in messages, theater commercials and date strips, from the 1950s and beyond.

An exact list of titles is not yet possible, but some of the possible choices are:
