Sundays on Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature
Run Time: 91 min. Format: 35mm
Warning: Images are not from the movies we’re showing. Trust us, you can’t imagine what we’re showing!
The second Sunday of every month sees Subway Cinema take over Nitehawk to unleash an action classic from the golden days of Hong Kong movies. We’re not telling you the titles until they appear onscreen because it’s more fun that way but, trust us, we’re celebrating the biggest stars of the ‘80s and ‘90s in their best movies, all presented in glorious 35mm.
To kick off this series we want you to imagine Raiders of the Lost Ark if Indiana Jones was a woman. And could actually kick ass. Rocking a chic ensemble of leather jackets and military gear, our heroine flashes two-fingered bunny ears before flying into combat, thrashing her enemies with a whip before cracking a million dollar smile. Nothing can stop her high spirits in this two-fisted World War II action spectacular that’s a widescreen triumph of Hong Kong filmmaking, exploding with non-stop action so intense the star herself describes it as “the hardest film I ever made.” Bring your daughters, but don’t blame us if they run away from home afterwards to seek high adventure in their very own biplane.
