Eric Nam
Eric Nam and his brother bought out an entire showing of the new Hollywood film 'Crazy Rich Asians'. 

On August 16, Eric Nam shared the news via Instagram. The singer announced that he and his brother have bought out an entire showing of the new film at an AMC theater located in his hometown Atlanta. Fans are given free admission to the movie on a first come, first serve basis. 

Eric Nam explained he decided to buy out the showing in support of the Asian community. He stated, "Because we're tired of being under and misrepresented in mainstream media and we want decision makers to understand that WE ARE HERE, WE ARE ABLE, WE ARE INFLUENTIAL AND WE ARE IMPORTANT. We're not just tech geeks, math nerds, and ninja assassins. We are brilliant, beautiful, sexy, hot, and much more."

Eric Nam encouraged people to show up and added, "And no, you don't need to be Asian to watch this movie, enjoy the showing, or be part of this movement. The most diverse the merrier."

To all my fans, friends and family in ATLANTA My brothers and I have decided to buy out a showing of the new movie CRAZY RICH ASIANS. DATE: THURSDAY AUGUST 16 at 6 PM LOCATION: AMC PARKWAY POINTE 15 (where we used to watch movies on the weekends) WHAT: FREE ADMISSION to Crazy Rich Asians! Ticket pickup is first come, first serve and you should sign up and read details @ http://www.wbtickets.com/CRAAtlanta (link also in bio) Why? Because we're tired of being under and misrepresented in mainstream media and we want decision makers to understand that WE ARE HERE, WE ARE ABLE, WE ARE INFLUENTIAL AND WE ARE IMPORTANT. We're not just tech geeks, math nerds, and ninja assassins. We are brilliant, beautiful, sexy, hot, and much more. The success of Crazy Rich Asians is about US. OUR community. This is about directly impacting our future and futures of generations to come. To be the first full Asian cast movie in 25 years is absolutely INSANE. SO! Let's pull together as a community and SHOW UP. The Nam brothers hope that we've made it just a little bit easier for you all to do so and to join in. And no, you don't need to be Asian to watch this movie, enjoy the showing, or be a part of this movement. The more diverse the merrier. Hope you enjoy the movie! #CrazyRichAsians #GOLDOPEN
