24 February 2014

Following the recent passing of Sir Run Run Shaw The Duke is dedicating February to that most legendary of film studios: Shaw Brothers. Join us on Monday 24th February as we pay tribute to the studio that helped launch the martial arts film as we know it with a night of Shaw related mayhem.

Our main feature for the evening is the incredible: Bastard Swordsman (1983). This over-the-top martial arts epic was released towards the end of the Shaw Brothers martial arts cycle and shows that the studio was still at the top of its game. A wild extravaganza of combat, sword fights, laser beams, double crosses, and an incredibly unexpected ending, all add up to an essential watch.

FB-freeOf course we’ll also have all our other regular features: Trailer Trash, short films, quiz and more, all with a Shaw Brothers flavour.

So come and join us as we pay tribute to the one and only Shaw Brothers! FREE ENTRY as always!
