Big Screen Big Apple- The Valiant Ones(1975) Sunday Feb. 13th at 4 PM

Let's give it up for the Museum of the Moving Image this weekend for bringing a kung-fu classic to the big screen. Woooo Hooooo!!! After being out of commission for a couple years, it's nice to see that NYC's best museum has an open theatre again. I don't know if this is part of the museum's ongoing Fist and Sword series or not, but it's really nice to see that King Hu's The Valiant Ones(1975) is going to be one of the opening screenings for the new museum.

The Museum of the Moving Image says - " A rarely screened wuxia gem, The Valiant Ones is a meditative yet action-filled movie about a 16th century husband-and-wife swordfighting team hired to protect China from Japanese marauders. King Hu reveals character through the film’s intricate fight scenes. "
