Celebrating the 20th anniversary of South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook’s cinematic masterpiece, Oldboy has been restored and remastered in stunning 4K. 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 and track down his captors.

Quentin Tarantino counts Park Chan-Wook as one of his favorite filmmakers, and Spike Lee so admired Oldboy that he remade it in 2013 (albeit, not very successfully). Park Chan-Wook has gone on to direct a number of acclaimed films, including The Handmaiden and Decision to Leave. For many, Oldboy remains his best film. A cult classic, it has served as inspiration for auteurs for nearly two decades. (132 min)

Please note: For those of you who attend regularly, Oldboy has a higher degree of violence than the average Ryder film.

Oldboy is a powerful film, not because of what it depicts, but because of the depths of the human heart which it strips bare. – Roger Ebert
