Not the Oscars: Parasite Party!

Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$25 / $20

Last year, Parasite became the first non-English language film to win Best Picture at the Oscars. With this year's Oscars postponed from late February, we’ve decided to celebrate Bong Joon-ho’s masterpiece and relive this historic win.

Come ready to walk the red carpet dressed in your best Awards season glamour and join us for a glass of bubbles on arrival.

In Parasite, the struggling Kim family live in a small, semi-basement apartment struggling to make ends meet. 

A suggestion from a friend leads to Ki-woo (Choi Woo Shik) posing as a university student to gain employment with the wealthy Park family. 

Soon he finds a way for his sister and parents to also enter the Park home – where they find more than they bargained for.
