1937 Chinese opera film Murder in the Oratory (斬經堂) at The Warhol from February 13.

To coincide with the exhibition Michael Chow aka Zhou Yinghua: Voice for My Father by the eponymous artist, The Andy Warhol Museum will show the 1937 Chinese film Murder in the Oratory (斬經堂) starring Chow's father, daily from February 13. From the museum's website:
Featuring Zhou Xinfang, Michael Chow's father, the film depicts a dramatic tale of deceit, murder, and family quarrels. Fei Mu merges the operatic and the filmic, crossing the stylized flair and song of Beijing opera with expressive camera angles.
The movie will play each day at 2:00 pm through May 8. The Warhol is located at 117 Sandusky St. on the Northside (map). It's open every day but Monday, and adult admission is $20.
