Police Story

New Restoration!

Friday, April 12 – Sunday, April 14

Double Feature with POLICE STORY 2

1985 • dir Jackie Chan, Chi-Hwa Chen w/Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin, Kwok-Hung Lam, Bill Tun, Yuen Chor • 100 min • DCP

The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in Jackie Chan’s breathtakingly inventive martial-arts comedy, a smash hit that made him a worldwide icon of daredevil action spectacle. The director/star/one-man stunt machine plays Ka-Kui, a Hong Kong police inspector who goes rogue to bring down a drug kingpin and protect the case’s star wit- ness (Chinese cinema legend Brigitte Lin) from retribution. Packed wall-to-wall with charmingly goofball slapstick and astoundingly acrobatic fight choreography – including an epic shopping-mall melee of flying fists and shattered glass – POLICE STORY set a new standard for rock-’em-sock-’em mayhem that would influence a generation of filmmakers from Hong Kong to Hollywood.

Staff Pick: Jessie, Greg, Kim, Cardinal, Erica – “They’ve got everything – wacky stunts and Jackie Chan’s butt. I won’t tell you in which movie though.”
