60th Anniversary ScreeningsEven after 60 years, Godzilla remains one of the most recognizable icons of Japanese pop culture and an important part of film history. As an allegorical symbol for nuclear weapons, the enraged, yet sympathetic monster-of-all-monsters rampages for the sake of self-preservation. The not-so-subtle cautionary tale shows what can happen when technology is misguided. This 1954 film launched a franchise that totaled 28 films by Japan’s Toho Co., multiple film remakes worldwide, and other media incarnations including comic books and video games. (2K DCP presentation)
Please note, this is new restoration of 'uncut' Godzilla; the original Japanese release. The film is in Japanese language with English subtitles.
