New York Ninja – Ottawa Premiere the Week of Friday February 18th!
Advance ticket info coming soon!
A sound technician for a news station becomes a vigilante ninja in New York City after his wife is murdered.
Shot entirely on 35mm in 1984, but abandoned during production resulting in all original sound materials, scripts, editing notes, and treatments going missing. The rights and unedited original negative were subsequently acquired by Vinegar Syndrome, who have meticulously constructed and completed the film, enlisting the talents of genre film superstars Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Michael Berryman and Cynthia Rothrock to voice the leads.
“Are you ready to discover your new favourite cult film? Trust us when we say nothing can prepare you for the madness of New York Ninja…a true cinematic celebration of the martial arts films that we all adore as well as a love letter to the enduring power of cinema” (American Cinematheque)
“a monstrous masterpiece of action camp that must be seen to be believed…New York Ninja is a crowd-pleaser from the word “Go!”…the kind of gem that demands viewing with a crowd. This is the reason we go to the cinema in the first place, to be a part of something special, to commune with our film-loving families and share not just a movie, but an experience.” (Screen Anarchy)
“It’s marvellously entertaining…For it to have remained lost would have been a tragedy.” (Eye For Film)
“New York Ninja is an instant cult classic” (Cinapse)
*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
