About the Experience

This Sunday, May 24th at 9:15pm EST, participate in the live stream of "Shogun Assassin". RZA—acclaimed rapper, producer, director and co-founder of 36 Chambers—and Dan Halsted—head programmer at the Hollywood Theatre—will provide live commentary during this special Memorial Day Weekend presentation. Their collective knowledge and personal stories related to "Shogun Assassin" will give viewers a deeper appreciation for the movies we love.

"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.
