Where to watch Parasite and other Oscar-winning movies in Singapore on a discount

Unless you’re living under a rock, you already know that the thought-provoking South-Korean satire Parasite made Oscars history by being the first non-English language film to win best picture.

Director Bong Joon-ho's exceptional, razor-sharp tragi-comedy about class warfare, society and underlying rage also took home the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay (another history-making first), Best Director (with Bong beating out bigwigs Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and Quentin Tarantino) and Best International Film.

Does this perhaps herald a long-anticipated new era to a more diverse and inclusive Oscars? Does Bong’s all-encompassing cinematic masterpiece truly deserve the big prize? Perhaps it’s best to decide for yourself by catching up on all the Oscar nominated films, especially if you missed them the first time round.

For film fans who cannot get enough of Director Bong and his genius, there will be a release of a very special black and white edition of Parasite. Painstakingly colour-graded shot by shot, Bong said that it’ll “be fascinating to see how the viewing experience changes when an identical film is presented in black and white".  

Golden Village has also released a special run of premium Oscar screenings for four films –  1917, Joker, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Parasite (the special black and white version). It’ll be held exclusively at GV Funan’s Deluxe Plus and Gemini halls from now till Feb 19, at a discounted price of S$2.50 off per ticket on all days. Tickets can be purchased via www.gv.com.sg, iGV app (iPhone and Android) and GV Box Offices.

Here’s a full list on where to catch all your favourites from the 92nd Academy Awards. You have no excuses this time.
