Subway Cinema's next SUNDAYS ON FIRE screening on Sunday, July 10th

Subway Cinema
Sundays On Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature
When: Sunday, July 10, 2022 at 12:00 pm
Where: Nitehawk Cinema
188 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn, NY

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 and this month they're REALLY bringing their A-game. The title will not be revealed until it appears onscreen because it’s more fun that way but be assured it will celebrating the biggest stars of the ‘80s and ‘90s in their best movies, all presented in glorious 35mm. This is one you won’t want to miss.

In the mid-‘80s, one of Hong Kong’s biggest action stars split from his former partners and forged a new solo path that saw him deliver one stone cold classic after another. Every movie got bigger — more stunts! more brushes with death! more action! more jaw-dropping insanity! — until finally he almost died. After he recovered, he wanted to show the world he was still ready to rumble and so he made this movie which is probably his most dazzling showcase of all time. It’s not just the action that stuns in this award-winning flick, but the intricately choreographed comedy, the massive sprawling period sets, the hairpin plot twists, and the turn-on-a-dime reversals. Sometimes a filmmaker delivers a movie that’s truly a gift to an audience, so consider this one Christmas in July.
