"Shogun Assassin" is well known within the hip hop community as it was heavily sampled in GZA's platinum album "Liquid Swords." The album is considered one of the best albums in hip hop history on account of GZA's complex lyricism and RZA's dark atmospheric production.

About The Movie
"Shogun Assassin" (1980) The story of Lone Wolf and Cub! Tomisaburo Wakayama stars as Lone Wolf, “the greatest samurai in the empire”. When he is betrayed and his wife murdered by the shogun’s ninjas, he takes his young son on "the road to hell" and seeks out vengeance. Roaming the countryside, they face off with countless ninjas and assassins, and are ultimately led to a confrontation with the Masters of Death, three of the fiercest killers in the history of cinema. This movie is action-packed, with blood geyser arterial showers at every turn. As the tagline states: "Meet the greatest team in the history of mass slaughter!"
Special thanks to both The Hollywood Theatre and Janus Films. Bringing this film to 36 Cinema would not have been possible without their help. We look forward to you joining us for this first-of-its-kind experience this Sunday.
