In Taipei City, a cavernous old picture palace is about to close its doors forever. A meagre audience, the remaining few staff, and perhaps even a ghost or two, watch King Hu's wuxia classic Dragon Inn - each haunted by memories and desires evoked by cinema itself.

An exquisite, wryly funny and tender tribute to the experience of movie-going, Tsai Ming-Liang's poignant love letter to cinema is one of the most beguiling and beloved dramas of modern times and is now widely regarded as a classic. Presented here in a new 4K restoration, Goodbye, Dragon Inn is more ravishing and hypnotic than ever.

Presented in a ravishing new 4K restoration, our region-free Blu-ray and DVD editions also feature a new and exclusive filmed interview with Tsai Ming-Liang, plus the world home video premiere of his 2009 short Madam Butterfly - and a 24-page booklet with writing on the film by Tony Rayns and a personal appreciation by filmmaker Apichtpong Weersaethakul.
