Nitehawk has teamed up with Nom Wah Tea Parlor & Lagunitas to make the John Carpenter classic BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA even tastier with our special FILM FEAST presentation.

Kurt Russell stars as the wisecracking truck driver Jack Burton in John Carpenter’s ever-classic, Big Trouble in Little China. As an all-American truck driver, Burton enters into a whole different world when he picks up his pal’s Wang Chi’s fiancee from the airport. Bubbling up from the depths of Chinatown is the evil and body-less Lo Pan who must marry a girl with emerald green eyes in order to regain his form…and guess who has green eyes? Thus commences an epic mystical underworld battle between good and evil complete with some of the best lines lines in film…When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: “Have ya paid your dues, Jack?” “Yessir, the check is in the mail.”

As always, our Film Feasts serve each dish at the moment its inspirational scene comes on the screen!
