More than just providing screenings of great films in appropriately great locations, Nomad events immerse you in the flavour of the film, with added elements such as music, themed decorations, quality catering and a warm friendly welcome…

Nomad Cinema bring their unique offering to this vibrant and stunning area of London, so be prepared to be wowwed by the gorgeous ground of Queen's Park.
Li Mu Bai (Chow Yun-Fat - Hard Boiled; The Replacement Killers) is an accomplished swordsman who is just getting ready to put his feet up and check in to a life of meditation when his very snazzy and sentimentally-valuable sword The Green Destiny, entrusted to his life long pal who he’s really in love with, Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh - The Lady; Tomorrow Never Dies; Memoirs of a Geisha) gets stolen by a masked intruder. Could finding the sword also lead Li Mu Bai to the elusive Jade Fox, who killed his master all those years ago? What role does the quietly tempestuous Governor’s daughter Jen play in the web of betrayal, love and power? And will his feelings for Shu ever be revealed?
What then ensues is a dramatic chase to retrieve the sword, in which Lee takes us into an ethereal kingdom – juxtaposing combat that bends the very laws of physics and startling beauty – from both the sublime landscapes and the totally kick-ass female leads!
