Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC) is hosting a free, outdoor film festival at Boston’s Chinatown Gate, showing classic Kung Fu films! The event will hark back to the days of the old Chinatown movie houses, which entertained families for decades until the late 1980’s. Films at the Gate is a collaborative project led by A-VOYCE high school youth.
