Crosstown Arthouse Film Series presents The Big Bird Cage
In the ’70s, mad genius producer Roger Corman took his crew to the Philippines to create the most enduring women-in-prison films in cinematic history.
Inside the hellish women’s prison called THE BIG BIRD CAGE, inmates like Terry (Anitra Ford, THE PRICE IS RIGHT) struggle to survive. They get their chance to escape when scheming revolutionary Blossom (Pam Grier, COFFY; FOXY BROWN) engineers a prison break… from the outside in! “Half of you won’t get ten steps before you get a boobful of lead!” Also starring Carol Speed (ABBY THE BLACK EXORCIST) and directed by the legendary Jack Hill (SPIDER BABY; THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS).
