Book Signing With Chris D.! Rare Japanese Cinema!

Thu, Jun 27, 2013 - Fri, Jun 28, 2013

Among the many series former Cinematheque programmer Chris D. brought to our screens was “Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film,” and now this longtime fan of Asian crime movies has written the definitive book on the subject. Twenty years in the making, Gun and Sword: An Encyclopedia of Japanese Gangster Films 1955-1980 features detailed synopses, key art and ratings for hundreds of films of the era. We’re pleased to welcome Chris D. back to the Cinematheque for two nights of hoodlums and hitmen from Japan, including PALE FLOWER, MASSACRE GUN, EVERYTHING GOES WRONG and KILLERS ON PARADE.

Created by Universal, the patented process of Sensurround pumped up the bass frequencies during action sequences so that audiences didn’t just hear sound vibrations, they felt them. Whole theaters rumbled when seismic disaster struck in EARTHQUAKE, thanks to specially installed speakers reaching frequencies below what the human ear can hear but powerful enough to be felt. Extra speakers will be installed in the theater to recreate the authentic effect for our Sensurround screenings, which also include BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!
