Regardless if you are a connoisseur of Korean cinema or completely new to the country’s film scene we have create an exciting and varied program that will delight, thrill, scare and, most importantly, entertain you.
We start big with our return to the Odeon West End with one of the biggest Korean films in the last ten years; The Thieves. With the excitement of this crime caper also sees its director, Choi Dong-hoon and lead actor Kim Yoon-suk gracing London’s Leicester Square. From the 2nd of November through to the 10th in London we will show everything from the big, box office hits to the smallest of independents ending with the much lauded Masquerade. This period, Prince and the Pauper, film which sees Lee Byung-hun as a King and beggar of Joseon Korea will also welcome the return of its star to London.
