Celebrate Chinese New Year 2019!  Join us for the critically acclaimed Crazy Rich Asians, the 2018 American romantic comedy directed by Jon Chu based on the the 2013 novel by the same name by Kevin Kwan.  The film stars Constance, Wu, Henry Colding, Gemma Chan, Nico Santaos, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Ken Jeony, and Michelle Yeoh.  It follows a Chinese American professor who travels to meet her boyfriend's family and is surprised to discover they are among the richest in Singapore. 

The film received positive reviews from critics, with praise for its acting, production and costume design. It is the first film in 25 years to feature a majority Asian American cast since The Joy Luck Club in 1993.  The film grossed over $238 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy in a decade.  At the 76th Golden Globes Awards the film received two nominations, including for Best Motion Picture - Music or Comedy; four nominations at the 24th Critics Choice Awards; and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 25th SAG Awards.  Two sequels are in development.  This is a free program, all are welcome.  Fresh organic popcorn served.
