Front Lawn Film Nights: 'Enter the Dragon'VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Get a bit of fun and fresh air with Asia Society this spring as we screen a collection of Asian and Asian American films outdoors on our front lawn! Spanning decades, genres, and cultures, our Front Lawn Film Nights series showcases groundbreaking filmmakers and artists who have made their mark in popular cinema.
Bruce Lee's final film, Enter the Dragon, showcases the philosophy and physicality of the international superstar as he plays a martial arts expert infiltrating a kung fu competition to investigate a notorious crime lord. This 1973 American and Hong Kong co-production helped bring martial arts to western audiences and is still considered one of, if not the, most influential kung fu films of all time.
View the film socially distanced from your own lawn pod — we've outlined a series of eight-foot circles across our festival lawn, each of which can accommodate up to four people, giving you and your friends or family space to cozy up in. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to enjoy during the film!
We're also offering a Popcorn and Candy Package, which includes a candy box sampling some of our favorite Asian sweet treats, plus popcorn made fresh onsite. Each box serves two people; purchase your box online along with your tickets.
Please note we'll strictly adhere to protocols to keep our guests and staff safe throughout each event. Learn more about our health and safety protocols and procedures.

About Enter the Dragon
Bruce Lee explodes onto the screen in the film that rocketed him to international superstardom, Enter the Dragon. Recruited by an intelligence agency, martial arts student Lee participates in a brutal tournament at a remote island fortress in an attempt to gather enough evidence to convict the international drug-trafficker responsible for the murder of Lee's sister. In the now-classic fight-to-the-death finish, two men enter a mirrored maze, but only one will exit...
