Transformers: The Movie Screening in Los Angeles this Saturday

Yes, it’s true, at Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema in West Hollywood this Saturday, Sept 4th, at midnight, they’ll be screening the 1986 classic Transformers: The Movie! Come see your favorite Transformers characters get swept out the door in favor of then-new figures for the kiddies to get suckered into buying despite a mediocre new leading cast.
