The folks at Bombs Away – the popular film-skewering podcast that records right inside our projection room! – is taking over The Frida on Thursday, August 16th for a special LIVE recording, coupled with a screening of the 1987 B-movie sensation Miami Connection!
Get two shows for the price of one as Bombs Away presents the absurd 80’s action film that Film School Rejects calls “the most entertaining time you’ll have in a theater this year,” followed by a LIVE recording of the next episode of Bombs Away! Who exactly is “the legendary Y.K. Kim?” What are the daily lives of an 80’s PopSynth Band who also does Taekwondo, and happen to be orphans that live with each other? What exactly IS the Miami Connection? Listen as Bombs Away hilariously dissects the movie you’ve just witnessed, and invites you to participate with an audience Q&A during the show!
But that’s not all! Step into an event that transports The Frida Cinema itself back in time to 1987! With multiple photo opportunities you can pose with Dragon Sound on stage, on the beach, and even mid fight! Grab a Dragon Sound T-Shirt and a collectors cup (sold separately at the event) and show the band your support! Reach into the mailbox for your chance to “find your father,” and win great prizes include Tees, Posters and Blu-Rays! Come dressed in your best 80’s themed attire or as a character from the film for your chance to enter into a costume contest!
Oh yeah – and ninjas. Apparently there’ll be ninjas.

About the Movie:
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (Taekwondo master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!
Written and directed by Woo-sang Park (as Richard Park), and Y.K. Kim.
