Kung-Fu Theater - a continuing series of martial arts cult classics every 2nd Wednesday of the month @ Brewvies. At long last we're thrilled to be presenting the original martial arts cult classic "TheStreet Fighter" - starring the legendary Japanese strongman Sonny Chiba!
Meet the meanest and most lethal karate master ever to rule the streets. He’s Sonny Chiba, one of the greatest martial arts actors and all around badasses in cinema history. You may know him only from his cameo role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill' as the humorous sword maker Hatori Hanzo. His career is actually much more illustrious however, and his worldwide notoriety began with this first installment of the infamous Street Fighter trilogy!
Chiba stars as Terry Tsurugi, a mercenary who has been hired by both the yakuza and the mafia to kidnap a wealthy heiress, but when he isn’t paid, the shit hits the fan for basically everyone involved. Highly censored upon it's initial release and even banned in some countries due to it's extremely graphic nature, it features fight scenes so violent that they garnered X ratings in the 1970's! Don't miss our one night only exclusive presentation of The Street Fighter in all of it's brutal glory on the big screen!!!
