Godzilla Is Coming...

 ... to the Jean Cocteau this weekend.

No, no, not the new guy... the ORIGINAL Big, Green, and Scary.



Starting May 9, for a special limited run, we'll be showing the original Japanese version of GODZILLA (aka GOJIRA, aka KING OF THE MONSTERS).  Not the Americanized version either, you won't see Perry Mason... er, Raymond Burr... here.

If you haven't seen GODZILLA before, you may be surprised.  This is not the camp Godzilla of the later films, when he was hanging out with Rodan and Mothra and battling robot versions of himself.  This Godzilla is no one's monster buddy, and the film is much darker than any of the sequels.

In honor of Godzilla coming to the Cocteau, our bar will be offering a special cocktail: the TOKYO STOMP.

See you at the movies.

Not fair!
As a lifelong Godzilla fan, I am so jealous of those of you going out to see this film in the Jean Cocteau theater! I agree with you on the tone of the first film. I'm really hoping the new Gareth Edwards flick can capture some of the bleakness of the first film. Though I truly love the later films and all their cheese, the modern world needs to be reminded of the allegory Godzilla originally represented. No! Not alien cockroaches!
