Over the July 4th holiday weekend, Sidewalk is celebrating director Ti West and MaXXXine, the conclusion of his iconic new slasher trilogy. Did you know Sidewalk and Ti West go way back?

You may have seen 2022’s X and Pearl at the Sidewalk Cinema, but festivalgoers will remember seeing West’s 2009 breakout horror film The House of the Devil at the Sidewalk Film Festival, where it won our jury’s Best Narrative Feature Film award — and again at the cinema last year during our 25 Years of Sidewalk celebration. 

And West’s work has been spotlighted at Sidewalk as our Opening Night selection not once, but twice. In 2011 we opened our festival with the creepy haunted hotel feature The Innkeepers. And in 2016, West joined us at the Alabama Theater to kick off the fest with his Western thriller In a Valley of Violence, starring Ethan Hawke and John Travolta.

Join us to see West’s X, Pearl and an early screening of MaXXXine for Sidewalk’s XXX Triple Feature on Wednesday, July 3! MaXXXine will be playing its regular engagement at Sidewalk starting Thursday, July 4.
