The organizers behind the annual J-POP Summit are touching base with fans via a new film series kicking off this week with a screening of 1954’s Godzilla. Grab a complimentary, boozy beverage and your raffle ticket and settle in for the real deal: A mega-monster movie TimeOut’s critic called, “director Ishiro Honda’s pointedly allegorical Japanese original… this film’s Godzilla comes off as a potent and provocative metaphor, a lumbering embodiment of atomic-age anxieties birthed from mankind’s own desire to destroy.” Now, that’s as heavy as a 10-story-tall dinosaur guy.
