"The greatest movie of the last 125 years."—Apichatpong Weerasethakul
"A must-see art-house masterpiece!"—David Fear, Time Out New York

"A requiem for a movie theatre."—Richard Brody, New Yorker

In Taipei, a movie theater is closing, but not before one final film is shownDragon Inn, a 1967 actioner and the source of nostalgia for the moviegoers and employees in the old, decrepit and possibly haunted building. The workers include eccentric projectionist Hsiao-Kang (Lee Kang-sheng) and a crippled cashier (Shiang-chyi Chen). The patrons include a Japanese tourist (Kiyonobu Mitamura) and two ghostly actors from the original film who have come to mourn the passing of an era.
