QV Outdoor Cinema is celebrating Chinese New Year in style with screenings of two popular Chinese movies, the action blockbuster Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on Saturday 28 January and the Asian hit romance In The Mood for Love on Sunday 29 January. Award winning paint-on-glass artist and Melbourne-based Chinese filmmaker Xin Li, will showcase some of his beautiful and animated short films before both of the main feature presentations.
