This week on Third Eye Cinema: Mike Vraney of Something Weird Video!
Mike has been a major and early force in preservation of drive-in, grindhouse, and American independent film, dating back to the late ’70s. Well before the advent of DVD or the publishing of a proliferation of cult cinema related literature and interest, Mike was out there making connections and gathering decaying prints from distributors, filmmakers, and fleapit grindhouses, so that we could still enjoy them 30-40 years later!
