Countdown initiated! The most anticipated film of the year is finally opening. Dennis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation.
We'll attend the afternoon show (4 pm) at the AMC Metreon in SF. Please buy your tickets now - this show will sell out.
We'll meet no later than 15 minutes before showtime upstairs, close to the concessions. Please stick around after the show if you'd like to join for dinner and/or drinks.

This popular and beloved classic film, produced by Tsui Hark and directed by Ching Siu Tung, is a standout in the Hong Kong supernatural-action genre and spawned many sequels and copycats. A Chinese Ghost Story stars Leslie Cheung as Ning Tsei-Shen, a timid and likable tax collector. Looking for a place to stay the night, he comes upon a spooky abandoned temple occupied by a tough Taoist swordsman (Ma Wu). Despite his warnings, Tsei-Shen stays anyway. Later he encounters a beautiful maiden (Joey Wang) who he quickly falls in love with. Unfortunately, she is a ghost who is being forced to trap men for an evil spirit who feeds on their souls. A Chinese Ghost Story has been widely praised for infusing the genre with humor, action, romance, and inventive special effects.
The film is available exclusively on Amazon (free for Prime members and also available for rent) [https://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Ghost-Story-Leslie-Cheung/dp/B09DWMRR]
