I’ve recently received a request to help spread the word of an upcoming set of events, that will enable the fans of the genre to see some of the most classic films on the big screen. Without hesitation, I agreed to do so. So, if you happen to be lucky enough to be living in the UK, or possibly traveling there between the dates of August 26 – September 15, then you most certainly might want to make some time, clear your calendar, then mark your calendar for the following 4 Friday night double bill screenings of the following movies, you will not want to miss these:
- Friday August 26, 2011 @ 7:30 PM – Invincible Armour & 7 Commandments of Kung Fu
- Friday September 2, 2011 @ 7:30 PM – Dynamite Trio & Daggers 8
- Friday September 9, 2011 @ 7:30 PM – The Challenger & Secret of Shaolin Kung Fu
- Friday September 15, 2011 @ 7:30 PM – 36 Deadly Styles & The Crane Fighter
I have been told by the coordinator for these screenings, that all movies will be presented in the English dub format. These movies will be playing at the Piccadilly Cinema in the city of Leicester in the UK. I can only wish this type of screening would come here to the Bay Area, where I live. I would love for an opportunity to see such classic Kung Fu films in a theater with fellow fans of the genre.
For more information, such as ticket prices, event address, etc. please visit the site here, or you can contact the coordinator direct at KungFuManLee@aol.co.uk with any questions you may have.
If you are in the area or plan to be on the said dates, please do what you can to support these screenings, if this event is successful, hopefully it would lead to more screenings on a regular basis. Who knows how many more chances you may have at seeing an old school Kung Fu movie in a theater, on the big screen.
