In the Inlander’s first year of existence, grunge took over the airwaves, the O.J. Simpson trial was obsessing the nation and Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction became an unexpected blockbuster. So we thought, “What better way to ring in our 25th year than with a screening of Quentin Tarantino’s violent, narratively scrambled 1994 groundbreaker?” It reinvigorated John Travolta’s career, it changed the course of American independent film and it taught us what they call Quarter Pounders with Cheese in Paris. On Oct. 17, we’ll open the Bing at 6 pm, which is also when we'll start pouring $5 beers and offering free popcorn, courtesy of Horizon Credit Union. You can win prizes by dressing as your favorite Pulp Fiction character or by participating in our Jack Rabbit Slim’s-style dance contest. No word yet on whether our Ed Sullivan impersonator will be there.
