    The Dryden Theatre presents four Godzilla films on the big screen this summer Author: Keith Aiken Source: John Yeara Official Site: George Eastman House

    Following last year’s successful screening of GODZILLA: FINAL WARS, the King of the Monsters returns to Rochester, New York. The historic Dryden Theatre, part of the George Eastman House motion picture museum, will host a great pair of Godzilla double features this summer. FINAL WARS was such a hit at the Dryden that Assistant Curator of Exhibitions Jim Healy and Rochester’s local Godzilla authority John Yeara went to work on bringing more Godzilla films to the theater. They’ve selected four movies that span the three different eras of the Godzilla series. Three of these films never received a wide theatrical release in the United States, so this will be a rare opportunity for fans to see them as they were meant to be seen – on the big screen. FRIDAY, JULY 21 DOUBLE FEATURE: Two films for one regular admission price! 7:00 PM - GODZILLA (Gojira, 1954) It all started here… the first adventure of the screen’s biggest movie star (literally!).

Director Jun Fukuda, 84 minutes, in Japanese with English subtitles FRIDAY, AUGUST 11 DOUBLE FEATURE: Two films for one regular admission price! 7:00 PM – GODZILLA VS DESTOROYAH (Gojira tai Desutoroia, 1995) A monster spawned from the Oxygen Destroyer challenges Godzilla, who is on the verge of a nuclear meltdown! Director Takao Okawara, 103 minutes, English language version 9:00 PM – GODZILLA, MOTHRA, AND KING GHIDORAH: GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK (Gojira, Mosura, Kingughidora: Daikaiju Soshingeki, 2001) Godzilla returns to symbolic roots as he faces off with three guardian monsters in this acclaimed film.
