Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

4K Restoration

Set against 19th-century China’s breathtaking landscape, two master warriors played by the great Chow Yun Fat (John Woo’s The Killer) and newly-minted Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once), are faced with their greatest challenge yet when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior fighting talents and deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy—and the inescapable, enduring power of love.

Returning to theaters in a new 4K restoration, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is an action-packed classic from acclaimed director Ang Lee (Sense and Sensibility, The Life of Pi) featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix).

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

"Ang Lee, a world-class director working at the top of his elegant form, has done something thrilling. For all the leaping action, it's the film's spirit that soars."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Yeoh shows us a soul being laid bare, in all its desire, anguish and loss"
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
