Come out and honor seven decades of Kaiju chaos, as Enzian Theater and Janus Films look back at the long and storied career of the King of the Monsters, Godzilla! 

This special three-film event pits Godzilla against some of the greatest foes of the Shōwa era, featuring new DCP restorations for the 70th anniversary of Godzilla (1954), the 60th anniversary of Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964) and the 50th anniversary of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974). 

If you want to “destroy” all the monster screenings make sure you grab our limited edition “Big Lizard Badge” which will get your discounted admission to see all three films.

60th Anniversary Screening! 

Godzilla faces off against the benevolent insect monster-god Mothra in this clash of the titans, a crossover battle between two of Toho Studios’ most popular monsters—the last in which Godzilla would figure as a malevolent villain rather than a fearsome hero. Mothra vs. Godzilla marks a creative high point in the Godzilla series, with pointed social commentary from director Ishiro Honda, a masterful score by Akira Ifukube, and astonishing special-effects work by Eiji Tsuburaya. 

1964, 89 minutes, Color, Japan, In Japanese with English Subtitles, Directed by Ishiro Honda, Unrated
