VIZ Cinema is unleashing the monsters for KAIJU SHAKEDOWN: GODZILLATHON! from Saturday, May 8th thru Thursday, May 13th. Featured are rare screenings of four Godzilla films from the 1970s' "Toho Champion Festival", which produced some of the most outre entries of the series, which were made exclusively for children. But, even so, these were some of the most violent of all the Godzilla films, and the juxtaposition must be seen to be believed — imagine H.R. PUFF'N'STUFF as told by Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah... But, wilder!
Screening are Yoshimitsu Banno's GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH (1971), Jun Fukuda's GODZILLA VS. GIGAN (1972), GODZILLA VS. MEGALON (1973), and GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA (1974) — all in their widescreen glory! For GODZILLATHON, Toho Company has struck brand-new, 35mm prints for this event, in Japanese with English subtitles! Previously, Stateside festivals and theaters could only rent Toho's "International" English-dubbed versions of the films — making this event even more special for Bay Area monster mavens!
Don't miss out on the chance to see the color and fury of these films in stunning 35mm a VIZ Cinema, the nation’s first movie theatre devoted exclusively to Japanese film and anime. The 143-seat subterranean venue is located in the New People building, which boasts state-of-the-art projection and a premium THX®-certified sound system, and plush seating. Ticket prices: General Admission: $10.00; Senior & Child: $8.00.
