Vinegar Syndrome opens the STOREFRONT THEATRE COLLECTION VOL. 1: THE PO-NO (review)

Vinegar Syndrome brings contemporary viewers a taste of the Los Angeles storefront theaters of the early seventies.  While chains like The Pussycat Theatre were showing 35mm films, the storefront theatres were showing no-budget 16mm films on a projector screen to an audience in folding chairs.  These twelve features and two shorts offer a sampling of the grungy, down-and-dirty works cast and crewed by largely unknowns apart that also showcase a couple future stars at their lowest and cheapest including John Holmes, Ric Lutze, Rene Bond, and Sandy Dempsey.
