Outdoor Movie Night: Godzilla
October 25, 2018 • 7:00 pm PDT
JANM presents the granddaddy of all monster movies, the original 1954 Japanese Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira)!
Made at a time when Japan was still recovering from the World War II atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, this remarkably human drama has spawned more than 30 remakes and sequels. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the rampaging radioactive beast destroy an intricately detailed miniature of Tokyo.
Presented in partnership with Haunted Little Tokyo. Supported by Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
Screened in conjunction with the exhibition Kaiju vs Heroes: Mark Nagata’s Journey through the World of Japanese Toys
