AGFA, Shaw Bros. To Re-Release Old School Kung Fu Titles Theatrically In 2018

Some of us haven't had the experience of enjoying old school kung fu in a theatrical setting. I'm an 80s baby myself and my own fandom didn't take shape until I was old enough to go to video stores or bear witness Dimension's crossover releases in the 90s.

Fast forward to present day America and with what's reportedly set to commence this year courtesy of the American Genre Film Archive in its latest partnership with Hong Kong-based Shaw Brothers Studios for the theatrical rollout of thrity 35mm restorations this year. Variety reported the exclusive last week listing titles such as:
The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
The Avenging Eagle
Bastard Swordsman
Black Magic 2
Blood Brothers
The Boxer’s Omen
The Brave Archer
Buddha’s Palm
Come Drink With Me
Crippled Avengers
Dirty Ho
The Duel
The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter
The Five Venoms
Golden Swallow
The Heroic Ones
Holy Flame of the Martial World
Human Lanterns
Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan
King Boxer
Legendary Weapons of China
Mad Monkey Kung Fu
Masked Avengers
Martial Arts of Shaolin
The Mighty Peking Man
One-Armed Swordsman
Shaolin Temple
The Super Inframan
The Water Margin
Release details remain pending for each title while its reasonable to believe these will likely be limited to select theaters. Apart from certain event and festival bookings one can only imagine what it would be like to live these releases on within today's filmgoing demo.
