A pop culture icon, a metaphor for nuclear weapons, and one of the biggest film franchises in history, Godzilla was unleashed on Japanese audiences, and eventually the world, for the first time in this sci-fi monster classic.

Tonight we present the original, full-length Japanese version with all of the dark humor and antinuclear messages missing from the American version. (95 mins., 35mm)
