Paramount at the Movies Presents: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon [PG-13]
Movies | 08/19/2023 | 7:30PM
2000 | | Runtime: 120 minutes
An epic set against the breathtaking landscapes of ancient China, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon combines the exhilarating martial arts choreography by Yuen Wo-Ping (The Matrix) with the sensitivity and classical storytelling of an Ang Lee film. The result is something truly unexpected: romantic, emotionally powerful entertainment.

Did you know?
- The actors performed almost all of their own stunts. CGI was used to remove the wires holding them up.
- Michelle Yeoh (Yu Shu Lien) deliberately did not work for a year before filming began so she could concentrate on training and learning Mandarin.
- While Ziyi Zhang’s (Jen) character is obviously highly trained and skillful in martial arts, the actress herself never had any official martial arts training at all. Instead, she used her dance techniques to learn her moves in these scenes as if they were a dance rather than a fight (which, in terms of creating and filming them, is actually not that far from the truth).
- This was the only martial arts film to date to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
