Goodbye, Dragon Inn is a Taiwanese film directed by Tsai Ming-liang, released in 2003.
Last screening before this movie theater closes its doors forever. A young man of Japanese origin walks into the cinema to protect himself from the rain. The crippled opener and the projectionist have never had the opportunity to meet although they both work in the same cinema. Since this night is their last chance, the young woman wants to share her fortune cake with the handsome projectionist. But when she goes to the projection booth, he's not there. She refuses to leave this place before seeing it again. She then sets out to find him in the maze of cinema. The giant screen passes Dragon Gate Inn, a blockbuster Chinese sword movie directed by King Hu in 1964. The Japanese man notices two individuals in the room who look like the actors in the movie. Older, sitting in this empty cinema, they watch and remember ...
