“CHUNGKING EXPRESS is one of Wong’s purest evocations of love’s excitement and heartbreak.” 
—Slant

Love is sweet, but for one pineapple-loving officer, it’s turned as sour as the expired fruit he’s vowed to eat for a month (or at least, until his ex-girlfriend returns, whichever comes first). Thus begins the dual tale of two jilted Hong Kong cops (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung Chiu-wai) who cross paths with two very different women (Brigitte Lin and Faye Wong). A total charmer from master stylist Wong Kar-wai.

This screening is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP in advance. RSVP does not guarantee admission, please arrive early as seating is first come, first serve. These shows are oversold to ensure a full house. Registrations are limited to two per person.
