Sunday Essentials is a series of single-feature 35mm presentations highlighting classics from all genres, with themed trailers and introductions by authors and film scholars, providing context and insight into the films screened.
In the world of martial arts cinema, one name stands above all as the pinnacle of excellence in form, fight and ferocity, and one film permanently cemented his status as a timeless legend. The man was Bruce Lee. The film is ENTER THE DRAGON (1973).
See the film that lit the wick to the 1970s Kung Fu film frenzy on Sunday, May 22, as we present Bruce Lee, Jim Kelly, and John Saxon crack the forbidden Island of Han in this explosive mix of slick spy and martial arts mayhem! With Angela Mao, Bolo Yeung, Anna Capri and an army of Kung Fu killers!
We’ll be joined by Grady Hendrix and Chris Poggiali, authors of THESE FISTS BREAK BRICKS: HOW KUNG FU MOVIES SWEPT AMERICA AND CHANGED THE WORLD, who’ll be signing and selling books and giving a live demonstration of the snake and crane arts of film introduction.
Join us for a night celebrating Bruce Lee and the 1970s martial arts boom, with more surprises than a night in the 36th Chamber!
Gates open at 6pm. Showtime at Sundown.
