Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (卧虎藏龙) to play in Pittsburgh-area theaters for film's 20th anniversary, December 6 and 9.

The 2000 martial arts film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (卧虎藏龙) will play in Pittsburgh area theaters in December to mark its 20th anniversary. From the distributor:
Winner of 4 2000 Academy Awards®, including Best Cinematography. Two master warriors (Chow Yun Fat and Michelle Yeoh) are faced with their greatest challenge when the treasured Green Destiny sword is stolen. A young aristocrat (Zhang Ziyi) prepares for an arranged marriage, but soon reveals her superior ­fighting talents and her deeply romantic past. As each warrior battles for justice, they come face to face with their worst enemy — and the inescapable, enduring power of love.

Set against 19th-century China’s breathtaking landscape, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the action-packed, box-of­fice smash from two-time Best Director Academy Award® winner Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, 2005; Life of Pi, 2012) and featuring stunning martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix).

This special anniversary event includes an exclusive introduction from director Ang Lee.
It plays locally on December 6 and 9 at the Cinemark theaters in McCandless, Monroeville, and Robinson, and tickets are available online.
