Shaolin monks. Animal fighting styles. Flying guillotines. Old school sound effects. White-haired villains with maniacal laughter. This is Kung Fu Theater. Rare 35mm prints of Hong Kong action films from the 1970’s and 80’s, presented by Hollywood Theatre programmer Dan Halsted. We’ve dedicated ourselves to saving these films and presenting them to modern audiences.
On Tuesday July 12th at 7:30 at the Hollywood Theatre, Kung Fu Theater presents the only known 35mm print of the martial arts classic SNAKE DEADLY ACT. Advance tickets are strongly recommended, and are available here.
SNAKE DEADLY ACT (1980) An irresponsible young man is the son of a kung fu master, but is too immature to take martial arts seriously. After getting himself into trouble, he’s taken under the wing of a mysterious master of the snakefist style. He soon finds that the master has an old vendetta against his father, and is looking to unleash his poisonous snakefist to get revenge. On the road to the inevitable snakefist showdown, we’ll witness a grueling training sequence, a wide variety of animal fighting styles (including lobster style!), and some of the most intense kung fu fights ever put on film. Directed by Wilson Tong, this is one of the most underrated kung fu films of all time!
