New Dryden. Member’s Movie Night A classic movie house in Taipei is holding its last show — a revival of the beloved martial arts film Dragon Inn — and the few audience members and employees who remain forge a strange community amidst the whirring of the projector and the ghosts of screenings past. A close spiritual cousin to Cinema Paradiso, arthouse auteur Tsai Ming-liang’s tribute to the power of the movies is beautiful, sad, and very, very funny, with some silent comic setpieces worthy of Sherlock Jr. himself. Members admitted free.
