It's barely been a month since Cocomaru opened in Kichijoji, becoming the first indie cinema to set up shop in the neighbourhood since the closing of much-missed Baus Theater in 2014, and now local cinephiles are getting more very good news. Shibuya's ever-excellent Uplink will be opening a five-screen, 300-seat branch theatre in the basement of Parco at some point this winter. The programming is set to follow the usual Uplink line: a fascinating mix of movies, particularly indie productions from both Japan and abroad, with lots of experimental and short work thrown in as well.
Open late 2018
