Originally scheduled for a theater-only release on Lunar New Year’s Day, February 12, Minari will now be available to view online on opening day. Distributor A24 has announced that tickets will be available via the distributor’s website starting Monday, February 8.
“Minari is for everyone!” the distributor said Tuesday in a tweet announcing the news. “That’s why we’re launching the A24 Screening Room, with virtual screenings starting Feb. 12 in addition to a limited theatrical release.”
How to Minari from home:
February 12: Minari streaming will be available on A24, and in selected theaters. You will be able to purchase tickets on the A24 website starting on Monday, February 8.
February 26: Minari will then be available on premium video-on-demand. You will be able to rent Minari on Amazon Prime, Google Play, iTunes/Apple TV, Vudu, and FandangoNow.

Can I watch Minari on Netflix?
Minari is not headed to Netflix any time in the immediate future. However, there is a chance that Minari will someday be streaming on Netflix. Movies from A24 seem to make their way to the streaming service more often than not, like Uncut Gems and Lady Bird.
Watch the Minari trailer
Written and directed by Lee Isaac Chung, Minari is based on Chung’s experience growing up as the son of Korean immigrants, after his dad moved the family to rural Arkansas to start a farm. Despite what the Golden Globes may say—the awards show caught backlash for shutting the film out of the Best Picture race—it’s a distinctly American tale about an immigrant determined to follow his dreams.
Starring Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, Noel Kate Cho, and Alan Kim, Minari has been met with rave reviews from critics ever since its premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, and the Oscar buzz has been brewing ever since. Now, nearly a year later, the film will finally be available to the general public to watch from the safety of their own homes.
