Synopsis
Set almost entirely in a crumbling movie theater on its final night, acclaimed filmmaker Tsai Ming-Liang ("What Time Is It There?") crafts an elegant and tender valentine to the pleasures of moviegoing and the death of a cinematic age. Run by a lonely female ticket clerk (Chen Shiang-Chyi) and a young projectionist (Lee Kang-Sheng), the theater shows King Hu's 1967 martial arts epic "Dragon Inn" before darkening its screen forever. A sparse audience gathers--some attending to watch a film, others attending in search of a connection. When a young Japanese tourist (Mitamura Kiyonobu) encounters someone with an uncanny resemblance to the swordsman in the film, we discover that comments about the theater's ghostly patrons may be more than rumors.
