Filmusik and Portland Parks & Recreation present
Gamera vs. Zigra
Admission: Free to the public
SE 31st Ave and Market St
Movies begin at dusk
An original soundtrack is performed live under the stars by Filmusikís orchestra and sound effects designers create every crash and roar of the soundtrack on stage. Come bring a blanket and desserts, itís like a drive in movie you donít have to sit in your car for! On the huge screen looming over the park you can see some of the weirdest and wildest Japanese cinema ever conceived while an army of artists from your own city of roses match word for word and explosion for explosion with great precision.
In this 1971 Japanese Kaiju film, Gamera takes on an underwater opponent who threatens Tokyo with major earthquakes. Directed by Noriaki Yuasa the father of giant rubber suited monsters bashing against each other, the film has some of the best Kaiju combat youíve ever seen (particularly if you havenít seen any), and a catchy theme song you may never forget.
Filmusik: Gamera vs. Zigra is presented by Portland Parks and Rec with the Richmond Neighborhood Association and sponsored in part by USBank and Safeway.
