New 35mm print!
Akira Kurosawa, 1954
Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.
Newly subtitled, Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai is one of the most popular and influential Japanese films ever made.
An action-adventure epic about a band of samurai warriors defending itself and a small village against a marauding army, the film sparked the American remake The Magnificent Seven and indelibly influenced such directors as Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone. Starring Toshiro Mifune. (200 mins.)
$5 students (tickets required)
