Back for a seventh run, the Old School Kung Fu Fest is kicking off its three-day event on August 18 hailing its latest theme, Wonder Women of the Martial Arts. Tickets are available for the event courtesy of Subway Cinema and the Metrograph in New York City, so if you’re a resident or just visiting from out of town and in need of some kung fu fun on the big screen, you’re more than welcome to endulge!
It’s the seventh edition of Subway Cinema’s Old School Kung Fu Fest, a perennially wild weekend of incredible classic martial arts and action movies, and for this lucky year we’ve got something extra special: “Wonder Women of the Martial Arts,” featuring some of the fiercest female warriors to ever grace kung fu cinema, a wellspring of tough gals. Female empowerment has never been this thrillingly cathartic, so come cheer along stalwart chop-socky heroines such as Angela Mao, Cheng Pei Pei, and Kara Hui Ying Hung as they triumphantly trounce scenery-chewing baddies (mostly misguided macho men, no doubt) with vengeful gusto!
Seven titles. Five legendary directors. Three days. It all goes down next week. Check out the trailer below and get your tickets at the official website now!
