Back by popular demand! I've decided to resurrect my old film series and bring it back to a space that has been karmically good to me - The Royal Cinema aka The Golden Princess. This space used to be a Chinese cinema back in the 80s and is where I fell in love with Hong Kong cinema. I'd be the only white guy in the audience many a time. Then when it closed, I was able to rescue movie posters and prints. It later reopened as The Royal and I brought my monthly film series there in 2000. Thirteen years later I find myself in charge of the cinema's programming along with my wife Katarina. Funny how life goes!
Found out that Sony has a DCP of Snake In The Eagle's Shadow, which was the first title I ever screened for what would later become known as "Kung Fu Fridays," so I decided to revisit a classic, 20 years later.
And I learned how to make and embed .gifs!
