The Oscars Aren’t Over: How to Keep Celebrating the Films that Won Big

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Northwestern chapter.

Just because the red carpet has been rolled up and all of Hollywood’s glamorous stars have gone back to their mansions doesn’t mean that the Oscars are over! In fact, after the ceremony ends and a new week of school and work begins, going to the movies becomes an even more special treat. For one thing, during non-weekend hours, your local theater is bound to be less crowded, especially during matinee times. Try to squeeze in a movie at the beginning of the day before class starts for lower ticket prices and wide-open seating. At the Cinemark theater in Evanston, tickets before 1 p.m. are $6.50 and early afternoon seats are $8. They also have discounted tickets all day on Tuesdays if you’re a Cinemark Rewards member.

It’s a no-brainer that Parasite is definitely the top movie to check out this week. Having won Best International Film, Best Director and Best Film, clearly this thriller is doing something right! The tension and fast-paced story line will have you at the edge of your seat! If you’re looking for something more scenic, buy a ticket for 1917, which took home the Oscar for Best Cinematography. And if you need a girls’ night out, definitely consider seeing Little Women, a heartwarming story with so many familiar faces (aka Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet)! 

An après-Oscars movie date with your significant other, friends or even just by yourself is the perfect way to take a couple hour break away from homework and the real world and get lost in a powerful story. Need a recommendation for what to see? Check out this list of films that won Academy Awards this past Sunday.
