Jump back into the multiverse with this free screening of one of 2022's most acclaimed, original and talked-about films!
Mild-mannered Chinese-American immigrant Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) runs a struggling laundromat with her husband, Waymond (Ke Huy Quan). During a meeting with a tax auditor (Jamie Lee Curtis), Evelyn’s world suddenly fractures and she discovers that she must ‘verse-jump’ into the lives of her parallel universe counterparts – from a movie star to opera singer to one with sausages for fingers – to save them all from a powerful being. As profound as it is profane, this metaphysical epic must be seen to be believed.
Nominated for a leading 11 Oscars in 2023, including Best Picture.
Note: this is the re-released version of the film, which includes an introduction from the Daniels and an additional eight minutes of outtakes during the credits.
