Sundays on Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Run Time: 113 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 cinema but this time we’re jumping to the year 2000 and going maximum Y2K by emptying a full clip of Millennial Mayhem directly into your face! We’re not telling you the title until it appears onscreen because it’s more fun that way but, trust us, this is one of Hong Kong’s most pioneering directors delivering a modern day action classic that rewrote the rules of cinema in a movie that stands as a monument to what might have been if anyone else had been brave enough to make the same warp speed jump so many light years ahead.

If that makes it sound like a sci-fi flick, you’re not far off. Even though it’s set in contemporary Hong Kong the city is shot like an alien landscape, there is so much running up walls, across ceilings, and down the sides of buildings the rules of physics seem to be suspended, and the cast are a multi-culti, polyglot crew of miraculous mutants whose luminous faces will get burned into your brains. No one ever screens this movie anymore, so this 35mm, subtitled print is our Halloween treat to you.
