Yes, you need to bring a print copy of your resume when you go to a job interview. Though this may sound unnecessary (since you'll probably have already provided multiple copies of your resume to the company), it both demonstrates your preparedness and ensures that a record of your qualifications will be on hand during the interview.
When you go for an in-person interview, you’ll typically be interviewed by multiple people. They may be recruiters, hiring managers or others from the team or group you'll work with. I often think of the latter group as doing the hiring manager a favor. They have less skin in the game, and therefore may be less prepared. It's also possible that the recruiter may have forgotten to send your resume to everyone (which is another reason as to why you have to bring print copies with you).
In any case, arrive prepared. If you forget your resume and the interviewer does not have one, the interviewer may assume you're not prepared. So, whatever you do, bring extra copies of your resume when you go to an interview.
