We are incredibly jealous of friends and film fans in New York City. This summer, Subway Cinema presents The Jackie Chan Experience – the biggest retrospective of Jackie Chan’s movies ever held! It’s a rare opportunity to see these archived films on the big screen, including ARMOUR OF GOD, CITY HUNTER, POLICE STORY, DRUNKEN MASTER. Four days, thirteen films – your mind will explode.
- The original DRUNKEN MASTER 2!!! We found a print in a warehouse and this will be the first time in years that the original, subtitled version of this film has been shown in the US! Considered by many to be Jackie’s masterpiece it’s one of the best martial arts movies ever made!
- SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW! The movie that made Jackie a star, screened with live subtitles (there are no subtitled prints).
- CITY HUNTER, the most insane movie Jackie ever made, screening TWICE because it’s so much fun!
- Two screenings of THE YOUNG MASTER, the first big film directed by Jackie Chan himself and the movie that closes with a 19-minute fight scene that even Jackie says is one of his best!
- All three POLICE STORY movies screened back-to-back on Thursday, June 27! That’s POLICE STORY 1, POLICE STORY 2, and POLICE STORY 3: SUPERCOP!
- Back-to-back screenings of 35mm prints of PROJECT A and PROJECT A 2 on Tuesday, June 25! These two movies are, to my mind, the funniest, most innovative, and most amazing movies Jackie ever made.
- ARMOUR OF GOD and ARMOUR OF GOD 2: OPERATION CONDOR, Jackie’s versions of the Indiana Jones movies, are screening together on Monday, June 24!
- We’re screening LITTLE BIG SOLDIER, Jackie’s 2010 movie that features one of his best scripts and best performances. There’s plenty of action, but it’s also very funny and not a little heart-breaking.
- And finally, we’re screening MIRACLES, Jackie’s remake of Frank Capra’s POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES. A lush, Damon Runyon-esque gangster story, it’s like Jackie’s version of a Golden Age Hollywood screwball comedy.
