To those seeking something that unites monster movies, the world’s most reclusive regime, consumption of mineral resources, and cheap booze:
Koryo Tours is screening the 1985 North Korean flick Pulgasari tonight at Bar Blu, which I hear will offer drink deals. From what I gather, the movie is about a sensitive beer-drinking blogger massive iron-eating lizard that helps consumers peasants take on bars that add service charges dastardly overseers. The second feature is Friends of Kim, a 2005 documentary about an at-times wacky tour organized by the Korea Friendship Association. Maybe if people stick around, Bar Blu can keep the North Korea theme going with Team America.
Things get started at 7:30 but you might want to get there somewhat earlier to guarantee yourself a seat.
