Director: Shusuke Kaneko

Rating:  NR

Runtime: 105 minutes

Language: Japanese with English subtitles

Synopsis: Godzilla returns to his “bad guy” roots as he rampages through Japan just like in the good ol’ days. In response, an ancient religious sect resurrects the legendary “Holy Beasts of Yamato” (Ghidorah, Mothra and Baragon) to protect Japan and destroy the threat of Godzilla forever.

Saturday, 7:30 PM:

GODZILLA (1954)

Director: Ishiro Honda

Rating: NR

Runtime: 96 minutes

Language: Japanese with English subtitles

Synopsis: Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira) is the roaring granddaddy of all monster movies. It’s also a remarkably humane and melancholy drama, made in Japan at a time when the country was reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the poignant embodiment of an entire population’s fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning almost thirty sequels.
