Wong Kar Wai Is Coming to the Academy with 'The Grandmaster' on July 22

Wong Kar Wai is coming to the Academy. On Monday, July 22, as part of their summer-long celebration of kung fu, the Academy will present an on-stage conversation between Wong and “Mad Men” showrunner Matthew Weiner, followed by an advance screening of “The Grandmaster.”

The event will take place at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The current Grand Lobby exhibition, “KICK ASS! Kung Fu Posters from the Stephen Chin Collection,” will be on display for extended viewing hours following the screening. 

Alas, the event is already sold out, but standby numbers will be assigned starting at 5:30pm on July 22. More info here.

“The Grandmaster,” centered on the martial arts grandmaster Ip Man (Tony Leung) who trained Bruce Lee, hits theaters stateside on August 23.
