THE HOST 6:30 A humble noodle vendor and his family must spring into action to save his youngest daughter, who has been taken underground by a gigantic, slithering creature. A major breakaway hit in both North and South Korea, this wild and woolly fantasy established Bong Joon-Ho as a major force in international cinema, and has everything you could ask for in a movie: family comedy, monster thrills, and a long, scathing look at US imperialist interventionism. (2006, in Korean with English subtitles, 120 min, 35mm) + SNOWPIERCER 8:45 After a global apocalypse the last survivors of the human race hurtle around the world on a modified passenger train, but still-lingering class and political resentments threaten to derail everything. Bong made his English language debut with this richly imagined and politically-charged parable, which features a stellar international cast, including Chris Evans, Song Kang-Ho, John Hurt, Ewen Bremner, Ed Harris, and Tilda Swinton. (2013, 126 min, 35mm)
