Front Lawn Film Nights: 'Minari' | What’s happening in Houston

Front Lawn Film Nights: 'Minari'

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 05/07/2021
Get a bit of fun and fresh air with Asia Society this spring as we screen a collection of Asian and Asian American films outdoors on our front lawn! Spanning decades, genres, and cultures, our Front Lawn Film Nights series showcases groundbreaking filmmakers and artists who have made their mark in popular cinema.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Since its release in December 2020, Minari has been making waves among critics and audiences alike. Having already won dozens of awards for acting, directing, and screenwriting, the film is also nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American dream.

View the film socially distanced from your own lawn pod — we've outlined a series of eight-foot circles across our festival lawn, each of which can accommodate up to four people, giving you and your friends or family space to cozy up in. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks to enjoy during the film!

We're also offering a Popcorn and Candy Package, which includes a candy box sampling some of our favorite Asian sweet treats, plus popcorn made fresh onsite. Each box serves two people; purchase your box online along with your tickets.

Please note we'll strictly adhere to protocols to keep our guests and staff safe throughout each event. Learn more about our health and safety protocols and procedures.
