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: 101 min. Format: 35mm

Warning: Images are not from the movies we’re showing. Trust us, you can’t imagine what we’re showing!

(Note: This movie is dubbed into English because why not?)

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, but this time we’re starting a dumpster fire! We’re not telling you the title until it appears 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 — usually.

This time out, we’re bringing the trash. Hong Kong’s evil genius of bad taste is Wong Jing, a director whose movies are described as “a taste of sugar, and a taste of shit.” Slapdash and ridiculous, churned out fast and cheap, they’re always totally over-the-top entertainment as long as you aren’t too attached to your brain cells. Exploding with stars, this particular film is an act of revenge in which Wong Jing delivers a vicious, action-packed satirical takedown of a popular action star whom he’d recently directed in another movie and couldn’t stand. Featuring top notch action choreography, no slapstick is too stupid, no shout-out too surreal, no bystander goes un-bisected, no child goes uncharred in this anything-goes lunatic tour of Wong Jing’s brain that feels a lot like sticking your face in a blender.
