Another Tokyo arthouse cinema takes its final bow this month, as the Ginza Théâtre closes its doors after 27 years of dedicated service. The 150-seat picture house is dusting off some old favourites in the run-up to its final day on May 31, including John Cassavetes' Opening Night, Pedro Almodóvar's Bad Education and Talk to Her and François Ozon's 8 Femmes. Screenings start at 8.40pm, with a different film each evening (except May 17), and there'll also be a pair of Saturday all-night sessions dedicated to Jacques Demy and Ken Loach, respectively.
