Cherry Hill Public Library to celebrate Bruce Lee’s birthday with screening of ‘Enter the Dragon’

Get your black belts and party hats ready and come to the Cherry Hill Public Library on Monday, Nov. 30 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. to celebrate what would have been Bruce Lee’s 75th birthday.

Retired film critic and Bruce Lee expert, Lou Gaul will join guests for an evening showing of Lee’s most famous film “Enter the Dragon” and conversation about the man who “Time Magazine” named one of the most 100 influential people in the 20th century.

A 10-year member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, Gaul will introduce “Enter the Dragon,” Lee’s final film. He will also discuss the film’s placement in Lee’s life and the culture surrounding it.

Gaul published a book about Bruce Lee in 1997 entitled, “The Fist That Shook the World: The Cinema of Bruce Lee,” which studies the impact Lee made culturally and cinematically. Gaul holds a master’s degree in Cinema Studies, and worked as an adjunct professor at Burlington County College where he taught America Cinema.

Birthday cake will be served in honor of Lee and there will be time for guests to ask Gaul questions.

The film, “Enter the Dragon” is rated R, and no one under the age of 17 will be admitted without an adult. Registration is not required.
