We just launched @36cinema today. It’s a first-of-its-kind experience from @36chambers designed to live stream a movies + provide live commentary + take audience questions. This Friday we go live with our first movie, Shaolin vs Wu Tang—the movie that inspired the name. It’s a movie that very few people in America have seen. In fact, we were able to get our hands on one of the only 35mm prints in the world. I’ll be providing live commentary and taking your questions along with Dan Halsted from @thehollywoodtheatre. Grab a ticket via the link in bio (use code “digital” for 20% off the next 48 hrs). Join us on Friday to celebrate a great kung fu film and the launch of our new platform.
