A night of white-hot hate! 

The gang swore a blood oath to destroy Precinct 13... and every cop in it! 

We're also celebrating the releases of Creatures of the Night and Replicas, the new novels by Late Shift at the Grindhouse author-in-residence Scott Jones, who will be signing copies in the lobby before the screening.

"Heavily influenced by Howard Hawks' 1959 western Rio Bravo, Assault on Precinct 13 is a tight paced action thriller that borders on cinematic perfection."- David Walker, BadAzz Mofo's Book of Blaxploitation: Volume One

"A great action-packed low-budget sleeper about the siege of an L.A. police station."
- Michael Weldon, The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film

"Before he made history with Halloween, John Carpenter directed this riveting low-budget update of Rio Bravo (with urban gangs and a near-deserted L.A. cop station replacing the Old West)." - Steve Simels, Entertainment Weekly

Assault on Precinct 13 revolves around an all-night raid by a gang of suicidal hoods on an isolated police station in Los Angeles. The gang, infuriated by the killing of one of their number, crazily besiege the station in order to get the man who did the killing.
