Come see the original “hallway fight” and so much more when Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy returns, restored and remastered in stunning 4K, to celebrate its 20th anniversary. For twenty years, this cult classic — unavailable to stream anywhere — has been thrilling audiences and inspiring other filmmakers. Grab a friend (or an octopus) and come experience Oldboy on the big screen.
After being mysteriously kidnapped and imprisoned with no human contact for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su (Choi Min-sik) is suddenly released without any explanation. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, he has only five days to retrace his past, track down his captors, and get his revenge.
There will also be a pre-taped introduction by director Park at the beginning of the film. Then, after the film, stick around for a special recorded conversation between director Park and filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) about the making of Oldboy.
