Film Series

Enter the Dragon + 5 Wing Chun Classics

Aug 29—Sep 5, 2013

In conjunction with the release of The Grandmaster, Wong Kar-wai’s biopic about Bruce Lee mentor Ip Man, we present a week run of Enter the Dragon in a brand-new restoration. The film screens alongside the greatest cinematic displays of wing chun, the legendary kung fu style Ip passed on to generations of martial artists.

Popularized by icons like Lee and Sammo Hung, wing chun has become an action movie staple. Revel in the gut-punching action, lightning-fast fight moves, and gloriously over-the-top kung fu choreography of some of the most entertaining popcorn flicks ever made.
