The Assassins (Terracotta film festival)

A meet to see the Chow Yun-Fat period drama/ action film 'The Assassins' at the Prince Charles cinema, part of the Terracotta Asian Film Festival.

It's a big budget, epic scale Chinese historical film (subtitled) in the style of Crouching Tiger and Hero, and is showing at the early time of 12.15 on Saturday 8th June. As there aren't great places to meet at the Prince Charles, we'll meet just outside the cinema from midday and get our seats just before 12.15 (its all allocated seating; I've booked in the middle but that area's getting booked out already. We'll go to the Slug and Lettuce pub round the corner after the film.

As this is the only UK showing of the film, it's gauranteed to sell out before the day, so please book online here. The Prince Charles is pretty cheap at least especially for central London, so it's £9.50 including booking fee (or cheaper if you're a member) but it does tend to sell out well in advance.

Hope to see you there!

    Thanks for setting this up gabriel! BTW I did Google what happened in the end
    Spoilers for any who didn't see the film and maybe to some that did :p Chancellor cao cao did not die after the coup of emperor Xian but years later at the age of 66. A year after his death his son Pi forced Emperor Xian to abdicate with him becoming the first Emperor of Ciao wei and naming his father "Grand Ancestor Emperor Wu of Wei"

      Thanks for the extra info on the story AJ! Good to know what actually happened, especially as parts of the subtitles disappeared from the screen at the end and a lot of us were confused as to the final end for the Chancellor.

    Mmh, it was good, a bit grim in parts & the subtitles at the end were unreadable.

    I've mailed my number to those who've RSVPed- if you're deciding to join Friday night/Saturday, please note tickets are in short supply so please book one online as soon as you can- you can meet us outside the cinema at midday or at the same place after the film.

    Looks like a great choice, Gabriel! Love a good martial arts film... nice scenery and cinematography as far as I can see from the trailer.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
