The actress captivated fans in movies like "Foxy Brown" and "Coffy" during the "blaxploitation" era of cinema.

Grier got a career revival when Quentin Tarantino cast her in the lead role of "Jackie Brown."

The 63-year old has a martial arts movie coming out in November called "The Man with the Iron Fists."

Grier's memoir is being turned into a biopic. The lead role hasn't been cast yet.

You can meet Pam Grier at the Hollywood Boulevard Theatre in Woodridge Friday night and Sunday at the Hollywood Palms in Naperville.

Both theatres will be showing "Jackie Brown" and "Foxy Brown."
