This event is standby only. A standby line will form at the box office one hour prior to the screening and tickets may become available on a first-come, first-served basis. Snowpiercer opens at the Film Society on Friday, June 27 with Q&As on Friday and Saturday.
Join us for a screening of Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho's highly anticipated Snowpiercer, followed by an onstage conversation and Q&A with the director. The film takes place in the midst of a second Ice Age, when the remaining inhabitants of Earth are packed together aboard the Snowpiercer, a supertrain that will continuously circle the globe until the planet is once again habitable. On the train—separated into classes, with the “unwashed masses” relegated to the intolerable caboose while the one-percenters bask in luxury—reluctant hero Curtis (Chris Evans) leads a rebellious charge to the ship’s engine room. Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, the film co-stars Song Kang Ho, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, and Octavia Spencer. Co-presented with Subway Cinema.
