Ax Throwin News

-First up, LA AX can finally serve liquor, specifically beer and wine. They've been waiting since they opened. Oh, they now feature mobile axe-throwing?

-There's a new Axe Throwing place in town, Mo’s House of Axe in Koreatown 611 S. Western Avenue. LA Eater has more info on it. They have a full bar. So, if you want to drink and throw axes you have more than one place to go. And they have a sizable menu of food. Tough competition.

KTLA tried it out too. Check out there Mo’s House of Axe Preview

Make Room For Mario The Walking Dead Attraction Closes In March

You have until March to experience The Walking Dead attraction at Universal Studios. On March 5th it finally dies for real. It isn't actually making room related to Super Nintendo Land, it looks like room is needed for a new ride and area for The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash ride, which is not related to Nintendo, so we care less.


Westworld Season Three The Broad Still Around

Anyone else notice The Broad in the trailer for Season 3 of Westworld? We're kind of glad decades into the future they didn't redesign most art museums in LA.

YETI: GIANT OF THE 20THE CENTURY, an Italian King Kong rip off from the late 70’s with basically a really hairy dude as some kind of Yeti instead of King Kong.

This is an experimental show where we’ll actually be showing a crazy exploitation foreign film with no subtitles. We’re going to have improv actors do the voices for all the characters and create (what we hope) is a totally new, crazy, funny story. If this works, we have access to a whole treasure trove of 35mm prints from all over the world. And we’ll be bringing the troupe back to create new, ridiculous stories for all of them.

The AGFA Horror Trailer Show March 8

Better grab tickets early for The AGFA Horror Trailer Show, March 5 at Drafthouse Downtown.

Unleashed from the dungeon of the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA), THE AGFA HORROR TRAILER SHOW is a senses-shattering compilation of the most spine-ripping, slime-slinging, soul-shredding horror trailers that you’ve never seen. Meticulously constructed by the mad scientists at AGFA to resemble an otherworldly night at the drive-in, this show features mega-rare trailers, commercials, and ephemera from the vaults -- most of which has never been screened since its original release. And it’s all presented via A BRAND NEW 35MM FILM PRINT!! Join us for this truly special event and witness skull-splitting on an apocalyptic scale.

Hype: Amoeba's New Location, Fishy Green Ale & Sex, Death & Clowns

No clear date, but sometime this year in 2020 Amoeba's moving to 6200 Hollywood Blvd. Scant details over at Amoeba's own site.

-Fishy Green Ale Now Available in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Come try this creamy mint drink with cinnamon notes and tasty blueberry “fish eggs” at Three Broomsticks.


 Coming to Two Bit Circus

Sex, Death & Clowns is a raunchy rock n' roll game show that brings you back to the days of hair metal and VHS and celebrates the greatest music era in history. It also does not give a $#¡† about the correct grammatical use of ampersands.

Currently on the final rounds of testing, this show is set to put up the horns during Beta Night on 02/25/2020. Keep your eyes peeled for tickets going on sale soon!
