‘Legend of the Demon Cat’ on screen

Chen Kaige’s latest film “Legend of the Demon Cat” will be shown as part of a special one-night-only event at theaters in and around Seattle, including Bainbridge Cinemas, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The film unfolds during the Tang Dynasty and focuses on well known historical and literary characters from China and Japan, brought to audiences via the latest technology with myCinema.

According to myCinema spokeswoman Rita Hollingsworth, “The myCinema concept was developed by Nagra — the digital TV division of Swiss company Kudelski Group. MyCinema utilizes AI to target cinemas and fandoms most likely to enjoy ‘Legend of the Demon Cat.’ myCinema delivers 4K, surround sound directly into digital projectors equipped with myCinema TPE (Theater Premises Equipment) in less than real time compared to the traditional 11-hour method, making the content easier (and quicker) for theaters to get compared to digital prints by services like Fathom.”

“Legend of the Demon Cat” is an opulent, sweeping film for which an elaborate set was created, including the construction of an entire village which took more than five years to complete, and makes extensive use of CGI, motion capture and elaborate set design technology.

Although the film feels epic in scope, and features internationally known Chinese and Japanese actors, as well as thousands of extras, at its heart, it’s an intimate story about love, death and revenge, tracing the unravelling of a decades-long mystery: The death of Lady Yang, the imperial concubine of Emperor Li and one of the Four Great Beauties of China, who was scapegoated for the crumbling of the Tang Dynasty.
