Best Picture Winner: Parasite at the Strand Sat., March 14 at 7

Strand Theatre
Saturday, March 14 at 7 PM

Just act like you own the place...

The little foreign language film that could: Parasite just would not stop winning Oscars earlier this month:

Best International Feature
Best Director
Best Original Screenplay
Best Picture (first time ever that a film not in English won Best Picture)

So, we are bringing it to the Strand so you can see what the fuss is about.

Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

See the trailer:

Advance tickets are available for $6 at the Highway 61 Coffeehouse ($8 at the door)
