Tickets are going fast for this rare 35mm showing of Toho’s 1962 monster mash, which pits hometown hero Godzilla against an endearingly ragged Kong on loan from the film’s distributor, Universal Pictures. This is the English-dubbed, American edit of the film, which adds a clunky subplot about United Nations news coverage of the monsters, but Ishiro Honda’s gentle spoof of television network excesses and effects director Eiji Tsuburaya’s remarkable miniature work, pyrotechnics and suit creations (of course) still shine through. Doors open at the Vista at 11 a.m. on May 18. Get your tickets here!
