Max Hosts Special 626 Night Market Pop-Up for HBO’s “The Sympathizer” in Santa Monica

Free Event Celebrates Culture, Cuisine, and the Highly Anticipated Series Debut

Max is ready to celebrate the highly anticipated debut of the HBO Original limited series “The Sympathizer” with a special 626 Night Market pop-up experience in Santa Monica.

The event, which will take place on Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, will be free and open to the public. Inspired by the series’ themes and narrative, which premieres Sunday, April 14, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, the event aims to celebrate the intersection of culture, community, and storytelling.

Guests attending the event, which runs from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on both days, will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the vibrant world of Vietnamese cuisine, art, and entertainment.

Live sounds by Vietnamese-American DJs Demonslayer and Annalog will accompany a special performance by Vietnamese-American artist Dolly Ave from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, April 13.

“The Sympathizer,” based on Viet Thanh Nguyen’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, is an espionage thriller and cross-cultural satire about the struggles of a half-French, half-Vietnamese communist spy during the final days of the Vietnam War and his new life as a refugee in Los Angeles.

The night market will feature a variety of Vietnamese food vendors, including All Dat Dumpling, All Dat Noodle, Café 949, Ridges Churro Bar, and The Ugly Bao, as well as merchandise vendors such as Steve Minty. Attendees can also expect HBO x THE SYMPATHIZER-branded elements and photo opportunities inspired by the series and traditional night markets in Asia.

“The Sympathizer” will debut on HBO on Sunday, April 14, and will be available to stream on Max. For more information on the series, including resources and organizations that uplift, celebrate, and serve the Vietnamese community, visit the official Max website.
