Hong-Kong-a-Thon Film Fest February 23 ~Manhattan~

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

12 hours of hell, showcasing 6 classic Hong Kong action movies in a row, all of them on 35mm, all of them hitting harder, jumping higher, shooting more bullets, and exploding into bigger fireballs than anything you’ve ever seen on a motion picture screen. A mix of stone cold classics and deep cuts, not a single one of these movies has played in New York City in at least a decade, and five out of the six haven’t played here in over 20 years.
