Kung Fu Theater

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.


invinciblearmouOn Tuesday August 12th at 7:30pm, Kung Fu Theater presents the only known 35mm print of the martial arts classic Invincible Armour. This is one of the top 10 kung fu movies of all time. Advance tickets are strongly recommended, and are available here.

Invincible Armour  (1977) Hwang Jang Lee is an evil white-haired Eagle Claw villain, and master of the impenetrable “Iron Armour Technique”. When a young kung fu warrior is framed for murder, he’s forced to run for his life from the vicious villain. Now the young fighter must survive an onslaught of kung fu assaults, and master the “Iron Finger Style” to combat the crazed Eagle Claw master. This is wall to wall kung fu action featuring non-stop fight scenes, a ripped off Spaghetti Western soundtrack, and amazing fight choreography by Master Yuen Woo Ping.
