Catch a great Hong Kong movie every Saturday at midnight for eight weeks, starting on Aug. 1 with Tsui Hark's flabbergasting A Chinese Ghost Story. (Don't forget to sing along during the Taoist swordsman's musical number.) Also on the schedule: his erotic fantasy Green Snake on Aug. 15. Other illustrious selections include Naked Killer on Sept. 5 (no word yet on whether they are planning a Carrie Ng Lesbian Assassin Look-Alike Contest), and the newly Hollywood-anointed Jet Li in The New Legend of Shaolin (Aug. 29). Of course, no H.K. series is conceivable without Chow Yun-Fat: As biker Jeff he takes on Simon Yam's outrageous gay villain in Ringo Lam's Full Contact (Sept. 12). All screenings at the Bridge Theater, 3010 Geary (at Blake), S.F. Admission is $7.50; call 352-0810.
