Subway Cinema's next SUNDAYS ON FIRE screening on Sunday, June 12th

Subway Cinema
Sundays On Fire
When: Sunday, June 12, 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 Cinema in Brooklyn to unleash an action classic from the golden days of Hong Kong movies. The titles are not revealed until they appear onscreen because it’s more fun that way but, believe that you'll be celebrating the biggest stars of the ‘80s and ‘90s in their best movies, all presented in glorious 35mm.

This Sunday's movie is an action-comedy with the emphasis on comedy. It’s a period parody that pairs Hong Kong’s greatest comic genius with China’s greatest dramatic actress for a double-barreled blast of satire sending up ancient Chinese dramas. Full of super-stupid slapstick action, surreal set pieces, and very weird running jokes it also features three of Hong Kong’s biggest action stars of the Seventies in supporting roles and it’s bursting with musical numbers, dumb contests, and crackerjack kung foolery. If you like your comedy on the wild side, bring your funny pants!
