The Paper Tigers

Dir. Tran Quoc Bao. U.S. 2020. 111 mins.  From writer/director Tran Quoc Bao, this delightful martial arts comedy features three estranged best friends (Alain Uy, Ron Yuan, Mykel Shannon Jenkins)—kung fu devotees as kids—who reunite to investigate their kung fu teacher’s death. Only now they’re in their forties, which raises the question: do you lose your kung fu when you get old, or do you get old when you lose your kung fu? A Well Go USA release.

Bring your blankets and/or lawn chairs! Please note: chairs will be available upon request for anyone who needs an accommodation. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Arrive early to claim a spot. Ticket holders are welcome to arrive even earlier to explore the Museum’s galleries (open until 8:00 p.m.).
