King Hu's 1967 masterpiece Dragon Inn gets restored
We've written quite a bit recently about the new Cine-Rama independent film theater on the Southside, and for a good reason: they keep bringing in some amazing films that otherwise would never see the light of the big screen locally.
The latest presentation is one of the greatest martial arts epics ever committed to celluloid: King Hu's 1967 masterpiece Dragon Inn.
During the Ming dynasty, the emperor’s minister of defense is framed by a powerful court eunuch and executed, and his family is pursued by secret police. In the ensuing chase, a mysterious band of strangers begins to gather at the remote Dragon Gate Inn, where paths (and swords) will cross.
This thrilling landmark of film history returns to the screen in a new, beautifully restored 4K digital transfer, created from the original negative.
