"There is so much writing in English on Japanese cinema that can't be accepted at face value — not because the writers are careless, but because the differences in culture and language are just too intricate. When I see August Ragone's name on a piece of writing, it gives me permission to place my faith in it completely. Among Japanese fantasy film historians, he's the best working in English." —Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

Hollywood Theater Signing for "Eiji Tsuburaya"

初代『ゴジラ』と私はポートランド市に上陸 !

The digital restoration of GODZILLA is coming to Portland this week!

This coming Friday, May 2nd, the original, uncut version of Ishiro Honda's GODZILLA (1954) will be smashing onto the big screen at Portland's historic Hollywood Theatre through Monday, May 5th. But, don't worry, Kyle Yount, the host of Kaijucast, and I will be there to help you survive this Northwestern kaiju attack in our opening intro on the making of this historic film. And I will be armed with copies of the new edition of "Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters" (Chronicle Books)!

The first copies of this new edition will be available at the event!

Showtimes for Ishiro Honda's GODZILLA are Friday (May 2nd) at 7:00 pm, Saturday (May 3rd) & Sunday (May 4th) at 3:00 pm, and Monday (May 5th) at 9:30 pm. I will be signing advance copies of the new "Eiji Tsuburaya" before and after each screening in the Lobby — but, supplies of these early-bird copies are limited (the book goes on sale to the public on May 6th). So, come down and get a copy before the rest of the country does!

Tickets for the Friday (May 4th) & May 6th Evening shows: General Admission: $8.00 • Seniors (65+), Students & Children (12 & Under): $6.00. All tickets for the Saturday (May 3rd) & Sunday (May 4th) Matinees are only $5.00. Advance tickets are available from the Hollywood Theatre!
