To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), join us for a 35mm screening of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (the album’s namesake) preceded by a tribute concert featuring FOOM!, a live hip-hop collective featuring a full band that thrills audiences with their unique blend of rock, R&B, jazz and rap.

After a deadly attack from anti-Ching patriots, San Te (the legendary Gordon Liu of Kill Bill) devotes himself to learning the martial arts under the guidance of Ho Kuang-han, in order to seek revenge upon the people who attacked his school. Also known as The Master Kill and Shaolin Master Killer, the film contains one of the longest and most impressive training montages ever put to film as San Te trains his way through the 35 chambers. 36th Chamber set the bar high for the many kung fu movies to come out of Hong Kong in the 1970s.
