    8th Old School Kung Fu Fest

    Happening in NYC May 3rd & 4th.

    Subway Cinemas Old School Kung Fu Fest returns to the mothership with a two-day blast of barefisted fury that will leave the Anthology Film Archives a smoking pile of shattered bricks!

    Some dubbed into crunky English, others subtitled, some cut into surreal storms of flying feet, others screened uncut every single one of these old school kung fu flicks delivers more electrifying entertainment than anything in a modern day multiplex.

    The insanity begins with a screening of DRAGON PRINCESS (1976, 35mm, dubbed) an ultra-hardcore Sonny Chiba production where Chiba's daughter (Etsuko Shihomi) grows up to murder men with her bare hands. KARATE!!!!! Afterwards, we're having a beer bash! Hang out and drink $1 beers, make new friends who know karate too, and speculate on what kind of madness we're unleashing tomorrow.

    Tickets are $15 and includes admission to both the movie and the party.

    Were screening six back-to-back old school kung fu flicks in two blocks. First, its three films from massive, international stars before they were famous. Then its three kung fu mash-ups in a row! Maybe kung fu horror? Maybe kung fu westerns? Maybe kung fu musicals? Maybe kung fu science fiction?

    Block 1: Young Dragons: Superstars Before They Were Famous
    Block 2: Infinite Kung Fu: Genre Mash-Ups

    6-Film Marathon: $35
    Half a Loaf of Kung Fu (see just one of the blocks): $20
    Rock! Shock! Pop!
