Pulp Fiction mastermind Quentin Tarantino is heralding his March 27 birthday with a special month long program at his New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles.

Quentin’s March Madness schedule includes a screening of Jeff Bridges in the The Last American Hero and a rare chance to catch Purple Revolver favourite Grindhouse – his 2007 co-laboration with Robert Rodriguez, in its full glory.

The Oscar-winning writer-director starts the extravaganza today with Rod Taylor in 1968’s Dark of the Sun, directed by noted cinematographer Jack Cardiff, and 1974’s Hell River.

On tap for Friday and Saturday are 1973’s good-old-boy action comedy White Lightning with Burt Reynolds, as well as the underrated 1973 The Last American Hero with Jeff Bridges. The midnight show is 1974’s Stone with Ken Shorter.

Tarantino has selected two comedies from director Paul Mazursky for Sunday and Monday: 1969’s Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and 1973’s Blume in Love.

For next Tuesday’s Grindhouse Night lineup, Tarantino will screen Grindhouse and project partner Rodriguez’s Machete – a follow up born from the trailer within their love letter to the genre.

Wednesday’s double bill features the rarely seen 1975 Man Friday with Peter O’Toole and the 1975 cult hit Cooley High directed by Michael Schultz.
