Long before filmmaker and unabashed foot fetishist Quentin Tarantino gave us Uma Thurman as the vengeful, slaying samurai babe of Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2, he gave us Thurman’s Mia Wallace — cinema’s cocaine-snorting anti-manic pixie dream girl (and a solid modern-day, go-to Halloween costume). For Tarantino’s iconic neo-noir sophomore effort, 1994’s Academy Award-winning Pulp Fiction, he recruited John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, and Tim Roth to join Thurman for a cinematic journey through murder, French hamburgers, Ezekiel 25:17, and the art of the adrenaline shot. Oh, and the film made proper use of “Misirlou” by the late Dick Dale.

Screenings begin at midnight on Friday and Saturday at the Main Art Theatre; 118 N. Main St., Royal Oak; 248-542-5198; landmarktheatres.com. Tickets are $7.
