Drunken Master 

When: Wed., April 16, 7:30 p.m. 2014
This 1978 flick popularized Jackie Chan's comedic, stuntman-free style of wild flailing, making him an action superstar. Chan portrays Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hung, a troublemaker who must learn the fighting style of the Eight Drunken Immortals from the titular master in order to battle the notorious killer with the "Devil's Kick." Translation: It's Chan getting smacked around before putting the smack down, showing the audience a hell of a good time. The film was directed by Yuen Woo-ping, who went on to choreograph martial arts in The Matrix, Kill Bill and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Grab a draft beer at the concession stand to get in the spirit. —Zack Smith
