THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Woman on the Beach
DIRECTOR: HONG SANG–SOO
SOUTH KOREA
"Even for those who already recognize Hong Sang–soo as a filmmaker of great psychological sensitivity and refinement, his latest offering comes as an unexpected delight: It is the most sheerly enjoyable and satisfying film of his career. Chang–wook won (Seung–woo kim) is a film director trying to complete his script who stumbles into relationships with two women he meets at an off–season seaside resort. In the process, he lays bare the destructive patterns of his behavior and generates material for his new film. Even as Woman on the Beach brilliantly explores one of Hong's enduring themes—the Korean male psyche in all its willfulness, anger and self–contemptÃ?it brings its female characters to the forefront in a revelatory new way. A luminous performance by superstar TV actress Go Hyun–jung, who chose to make her film debut with Hong, imbues the film with warmth, intelligence and hard–won optimism."—New York Film Festival. ( 128 min )


Filmography: The Day the Pig Fell in the Well (96), The Power of Kangwon Province (98), Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors (00), Woman Is the Future of Man (04), Tale of Cinema (05).

King and the Clown
DIRECTOR: JUN–IK LEE
SOUTH KOREA
Jun–ik Lee's film reigns as South Korea's most successful domestic film of all time. Adapted from a local play, the basic premise concerns a pair of street clowns during the 16th century Chosun Dynasty who are arrested for vulgarly satirizing the tyrannical king in their latest play. Faced with execution, their only chance for pardon is to somehow get the king laughing. Seok–Hwan Choi's witty script deftly explores themes of gender identity and sexuality as a subtle love between the king and one of his new court jesters unfolds, making the film's phenomenal box–office success remarkable considering South Korea's relatively conservative nature. Winner of the Korean Grand Bell prize for Best Film and this year's Korean submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 119 min )

The Host
DIRECTOR: BONG JOON–HO
SOUTH KOREA
A smash hit in South Korea, Bong Jooh–ho's exhilarating genre–bending take on '50s B–monster movies is funny, suspenseful and rich with pointed political and social satire. When toxins from a U.S. military base flow into the Han River it causes the birth of a mutant squid–like creature that proceeds to terrorize the, at first bemused, citizens of Seoul. When the 30–foot beast grabs a little girl, her dysfunctional family must band together to save her. Bong uses a highly commercial genre and great design and effects to offer a pointed commentary on Korean society, with its conformity and greed as well as its increasing alienation from America. ( 119 min )


Filmography: Memories of Murder (04), Barking Dogs (00).
