THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Perhaps Love
DIRECTOR: PETER HO–SUN CHAN
HONG KONG
Winner of six prizes at the Hong Kong Film Awards, including Best Actress and Music, Perhaps Love is a glorious, bittersweet musical told through a kaleidoscope of flashbacks and lavish film–within–a–film musical numbers. A musical film production in Shanghai sets the scene for a tragic love triangle featuring a pan–Asian all–star cast, including Hong Kong singer/actor Jacky Cheung, Chinese actress Xun Zhou, Japanese heart–throb Takeshi Kaneshiro, and Korean star Ji Jin–Hee. Chan's mastery of mood and emotion is exceptional, shifting seamlessly between the energetic and elegiac to moving sadness and melancholy. "As a lament for love lost and as a passionate tribute to cinema's ability to immortalize our fleeting lives, the film is a magical, deeply moving experience."—San Francisco International Film Festival. This year's Hong Kong submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 110 min )


Filmography: Tom, Dick and Hairy (93), He's a Woman, She's a Man (94), Comrades: Almost a Love Story (97), The Love Letter (99).

Triad Election
DIRECTOR: JOHNNIE TO
HONG KONG
"Jimmy (Louis Koo, a current superstar of Hong Kong cinema) is in the running for the coveted post of triad president (aka head of the Honk Kong mob). He faces resistance from his 'godfather' Lok (Simon Yam), who has served his two–year term but makes an increasingly desperate effort to throw tradition to the winds and maintain his position. As the power plays escalate, so does the violenceÉnot to mention the virtuosity of director Johnnie To, who creates one spectacular set piece after another: a nerve–shredding game of hide and seek in an outdoor restaurant, a shocking interrogation scene involving butcher's knives and ravenous dogs that is strictly for the stout–hearted, and a genuinely tragic conclusion. To is working deep within the traditions of the gangster genre, but he's also given Triad Election a genuinely political edge: In his dog–eat–dog vision, the body of free–market expansion beats with a savage heart."—New York Film Festival. ( 92 min )


Selected Filmography: The Enigmatic Case (79), The Mission (99), PTU (03), Breaking News (04), Election (05).
