Sundays on Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature
Run Time: 102 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 the 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.
This Sunday’s show is an action-comedy with the emphasis on comedy! It’s a period parody that pairs Hong Kong’s greatest comic genius with China’s greatest dramatic actress for a double-barreled blast of satire sending up ancient Chinese dramas. Full of super-stupid slapstick action, surreal setpieces, and very weird running jokes it also features three of Hong Kong’s biggest action stars of the Seventies in supporting roles and it’s burst with musical numbers, dumb contests, and crackerjack kung foolery.
