Fantastic double feature tonight with 1971’s THE DUEL (released here as DUEL OF THE IRON FIST), like KING BOXER helped bring about the kung fu craze in the states, as well as being directed by the great Chang Cheh and pairing Ti Ling and David Chiang. An absurd amount of violence and gore especially given the time, this classic didn’t disappoint. I can’t believe they used to show this on TV, what with all the throat-slitting and disembowling, but hey, it was the ‘80s. Immediately ran from the end into a super fine print of MIDNIGHT RUN, which held up incredibly well as a buddy road trip comedy, especially Charles Grodin’s oddball performance which I totally took for granted as a kid. Great audience for it too, everyone was super into it; reminded me a lot of the PLAINS TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES screening I went to a couple of years ago here. From last night: the 35mm print of SUPER FLY was pretty amazing, to the extent that I had no idea I was watching film. Very enjoyable and honestly more thoughtful than I was expecting from a blaxploitation classic known largely for glamorizing the drug trade - which, to be fair, it totally does, spectacularly - but the photography and beloved Curtis Mayfield score are such a treat, alongside the genre hijinks. More to come this week... #theduel #dueloftheironfist #midnightrun #mondaynightthreadup #35mm #superfly

Quite possibly THE greatest of the blaxploitation flicks. Hosted with gusto by my good man @domcasualdiscos. Support the weird and the wacky and the great in your neighborhood, people.

Taking a short breather between two #35mm action flicks tonight. 1. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA is one of my childhood faves and it’s still super fun - loved seeing it on the big screen for the first time with my brother. (But, shame the “Son of a bitch MUST PAY” line was chopped on this print 😔) 2. A lovely rendition of Jack Burton’s tank top by @whosgotthechalk 3. Waiting now to see Isaac Hayes in TRUCK TURNER which I am super psyched to see for the first time! #bigtroubleinlittlechina #truckturner #mondaynightthreadup #alamodrafthouse

Everyone attending tonight’s 7pm screening of BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA in 35mm at @AlamoYonkers needs to stick around after the movie ends — Jonathan Kaplan’s Blaxploitation classic, TRUCK TURNER (1974), screens on 35mm at 9:45pm in the same theater and there are plenty of good seats left! This is a late show, but if there was ever a movie worth staying up late on a Monday night for and sucking it up at work the next day, it’s this one!! So I’ll see you guys there?? 🎞📽👊🏾 #truckturner #isaachayes #alamodrafthouse #alamoyonkers #alamogreaterny #70s #1970s #70smovie #1974 #action #actionmovie #actionfilm #exploitation #exploitationmovie #exploitationfilm #grindhouse #cultmovie #cultfilm #movies #film #filmclub #35mm #cinephile #mondaynightthreadup #yonkers #weschester #toughguycinema

This month’s Monday Night Thread-Up: PUNISHER: WAR ZONE! This was so, so dumb, but I was highly entertained. The violence is hilarous and unreal - at one point Punisher explodes a man’s face with a mere punch. Like watching a Troma flick with a budget and some degree of competence. Despite the terrible soundtrack and Dominick West’s unfathomable “Nu Yawk” accent, good shit! #alamodrafthouse #mondaynightthreadup #punisherwarzone

This was crazy; glad I got to see this, on film no less. So many questions, but a few were answered in the Q&A afterwards with director Slava Tsukerman, composer Clive Smith and star Anne Carlisle (who gave a memorable and bizarre dual-role performance) that was recorded for an upcoming @vinegarsyndrome Blu-ray release. Good luck captioning Slava, guys!#liquidsky #alamodrafthouse #mondaynightthreadup #35mm

Tonight's Monday Night Thread-Up at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers is Sam Firstenberg's AMERICAN NINJA 2: THE CONFRONTATION (1987), in 35mm! This one has pretty much everything you would want from a 1980's action sequel. 👊 #americanninja2theconfrontation #americanninja2 #alamodrafthouse #alamoyonkers #alamogreaterny @alamoyonkers @drafthouse #americanninja #mondaynightthreadup #michaeldudikoff #ninja #ninjas #ninjamovie #35mm #action #actionmovie #actionfilm #80s #1980s #80smovie #cannonfilms #golanglobus #movies #film #filmclub #cinephile #movienight

Not bad. Great visuals as expected from De Palma, some masterfully crafted sequences and one of the best/worst/sleaziest ideas for an opening heist ever. One badly-conceived twist almost ruined it though. Worth the trip for sure. #alamodrafthouse #femmefatale #mondaynightthreadup #35mm

Tonight's Monday Night Thread-Up: Walter Hill's STREETS OF FIRE. Never seen this before. Live-action ROCK & RULE? As good as THE WARRIORS and 48 HRS or as bad as LAST MAN STANDING? Guess I'll find out... #alamodrafthouse #streetsoffire #mondaynightthreadup #35mm
