I do not know what they will screen...
I could as since once in a while I contribute some articles on Cinema but not as often as I'd wished (lot of other jobs to take care of...).

Just letting you know, as a Shaw Brothers fan, that a company called Celestial picked up the rights to about 800 Shaw titles, and is releasing them in region 3 NTSC, in their original language, restored from the original negative.

I just got "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin" from them and it looks so damn good. A nice little documentary and some behind the scenes stills as well. Now I am waiting for 2 Champions of Shaolin coming out this October.
