Video Vengeance #3: Showdown in Little Tokyo

  • KITCH (229 Geary Avenue)
  • 7:30 p.m.

The boys at Modern Superior are bringing yet another VHS classic to the masses with Video Vengeance #3. This time they’re going with 1991′s Showdown in Little Tokyo, which sees a pair of muscle-bound, martial artist LA cops team up to fight the Yakuza, a Japanese criminal organization. What sets this apart from other action movies, you ask? Dolph Lundgren plays an orphaned white American raised in Japan, and Brandon Lee a Japanese-American valley-dude from California. Because, why not? Come out, grab a drink, and witness the ridiculousness, you might even win a raffle prize!
