Pam Grier & Jack Hill Classic COFFY Screens In Melbourne At ACMI!

Our good friends at CINEMANIACS will be hosting a screening of Jack Hill’s 1973 AIP Blaxploitation classic COFFY at ACMI on Friday 25th of June.

The screening will preceded by a presentation by filmmaker and film commentator Paul Anthony Nelson (RRR’s PRIMAL SCREEN).

The legendary Pam Grier plays the titular role in this urban hard edged drug-centric vigilante flick as a nurse on a one-woman quest to take down dealers and pimps and other lowlifes that plague the city.

Tickets are limited due to current capacity restrictions so don’t delay and secure yours today here.
