Closed Until Further Notice


Dear Friends and Neighbors, After a great deal of research I have decided to temporarily close the Crescent Theater out of concern for the Coronavirus. This decision becomes effective immediately. All currently scheduled films are cancelled until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Many of our upcoming films have already been temporarily postponed by the studios so the decision to close our doors was inevitable. Let's hope for a speedy solution to this problem and a quick return to the movies. Thank you and good luck, Max

Parasite

Played Winter 2020

Greed and class discrimination threaten the newly formed symbiotic relationship between the wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim clan.

Bong Joon Ho brings his work 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.

An urgent, brilliantly layered look at timely social themes, Parasite finds writer-director Bong Joon Ho in near-total command of his craft.

MPAA Rating: R
