30TH ANNIVERSARY: CHUNGKING EXPRESS

May 12, 16 & 17, 2024
30th Anniversary: Chungking Express
The whiplash, double-pronged “Chungking Express” is one of the defining works of nineties cinema and the film that made Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai an instant icon. Two heartsick Hong Kong cops (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung), both jilted by ex-lovers, cross paths at the Midnight Express take-out restaurant stand, where the ethereal pixie waitress Faye (Faye Wong) works. Anything goes in Wong’s gloriously shot and utterly unexpected charmer, which cemented the sex appeal of its gorgeous stars and forever turned canned pineapple and the Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” into tokens of romantic longing.
Dir: Wong Kar Wai / 1994 / Hong Kong / 102 min

“It’s so good—so subtle, truthful, and simple. This movie allows you to just look at human beings as human beings for a second. Wong Kar-wai is a master.” – Steven Yeun

SCREENING: SUN 5/12 7PM; THU 5/16 4PM; FRI 5/17 7PM

Tickets are available at the box office 30 minutes before showtimes.
