Shaolin vs Wu Tang – Live Stream w/commentary from RZA

May 8, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - May 9, 2020 @ 9:00 pm


We’re excited to announce that this Friday, May 8th at 9:15pm, we will be live streaming “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” as a special one-time United Theatre Virtual Screening Room event in partnership with 36 Cinema.

RZA—acclaimed rapper, producer, director and co-founder of 36 Chambers—and Dan Halsted—head programmer at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland —will provide live commentary during the film. Their collective knowledge and personal stories related to “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” will give viewers a deeper appreciation for the movies we love. Viewers will also be able to ask the moderators questions during the screening.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at: A portion of every ticket sold directly benefits The United Theatre.

“Doors” open at 8:30pm EST with the movie starting at 9:15pm EST. Everyone who purchases a ticket will receive a link to the live stream 45 minutes prior to showtime. Shaolin vs Wu Tang has a runtime of 90 minutes.

“Shaolin vs Wu Tang” (sometimes referred to as Shaolin and Wu Tang) is a 1983 martial arts film directed by and starring Gordon Liu. Not only is the intro from Wu-Tang Clan’s track “Bring Da Ruckus” sampled from this movie, but RZA pulled the name Wu-Tang Clan from this movie!

Even though this movie has had a great impact on hip hop culture, very few people have seen it. We’re fortunate to link with Halsted on this project; he has what is believed to be the only 35mm print of “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” in North America. The digital viewing is a pristine transfer of this 35mm print.
