John Cho, Haley Lu Richardson and director Kogonada to return to city for ‘Columbus’ anniversary

COLUMBUS, Ind. — “Columbus” director Kogonada, and its two stars, actors John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson, will return to Columbus on Monday for a public conversation for the fifth anniversary of the movie’s premiere.
The event will be at the former North Christian Church to shine a light on this important asset in the community, which is one of the filming locations for the movie.
A reception is planned from 5 to 5:30 p.m., followed by a conversation with the director and actors, until 7 p.m., moderated by Holly Warren, assistant director for the arts in Bloomington.
This event is made possible through support from the Columbus Area Visitor Center, and a “Collaboration Grant” from the City of Bloomington from Indiana Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
YES Cinema, where the movie had its premiere, is showing the film this week.
