Cinema Overdrive Series: Cockfighter

Monday, July 22, 2024
1974 Rated: R Run Time: 1 hour 23 minutes Cult-B-movie Cinema Overdrive is a monthly film series dedicated to bringing you the very best in cult, exploitation and gonzo-action cinema. Specializing in the audacious, the ludicrous and the flat-out ridiculous, each Cinema Overdrive screening will bring you some of the rarest and most entertaining features and trailers you’ll ever see! This month, Frank Mansfield (Warren Oates) is a game cock trainer who has taken a vow of silence; he once bragged too loudly about his cockfighting prowess and ended up losing his best fowl in a drunken, late-night match before an important tournament. To regain his pride after such hubris, Frank refuses to utter a word until he wins the coveted “Cockfighter of the Year” medal. Cockfighter follows his ups and downs as he attempts to succeed in the shadowy, barely legal sport. Will call tickets may be picked up at The Cary Box Office beginning one hour prior to the movie.
Trailer Caution: Campy violence and brief nudity.
