Description

Part of our KAIJU SUMMER series: Sunday, August 25, 2019 @ 10:30a, the Vista. GMK GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK (2001, Toho/Sony, dir by Shusuke Kaneko, 35mm)

A new century, a new Godzilla era. The Godzilla Millennium era finds a return to the 1950’s conception of Godzilla as basically a destructive kaiju who visits vengeance and havoc upon Japan.

Interestingly though here, Godzilla doesn’t represent Japan’s fears about nuclear power. Here Godzilla is a kind of kaiju embodiment of Japan’s guilt over its war atrocities during World War II. For indeed, Godzilla appears to be possessed by the souls of all those killed by Japanese WWII war crimes.

GMK Giant Monsters All Out Attack is essentially the 21st century’s Destroy All Monsters. Many of our favorite Kaiju-Mothra, Baragon, King Ghidorah-return to do all-out battle with Godzilla. We also see the seeds of the direction that the most recent American Godzilla King of the Monsters appears to take with its notion of certain kaiju being “guardians” of the earth.

This Godzilla entry is particularly special because it is helmed by director Shusuke Kaneko who directed the much loved mid-90’s kaiju GAMERA trilogy. He brings the intense, visual, cinematic sensibility that made that trilogy such a hit to this Godzilla film.

GMK also marks one of the last times that a Godzilla movie would use all the old-guard practical special effects-models, monster suits, etc. Within a few years, most of the Godzilla movies would be relying heavily (if not entirely) on CGI effects.

So join us for what many consider to be the best Godzilla in the Millennium series and one of the best Godzillas of any era. . .

Best always,

Craig Hammill

SECRET MOVIE CLUB FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

TICKETS: Tickets for all our events are available online at https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com or through each individual event on our Facebook Page:

https://www.facebook.com/secretmovieclub35mm/.

Unless otherwise noted, all our movies screen at The Vista Theater, 4473 Sunset Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027.

We currently are showing 1-2 documentaries with Director Q&A's afterwards a season at the Los Feliz 3, 1822 North Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90027; about 8 blocks from the Vista Theater in Los Feliz.

We also make tickets available at the Vista Box Office.

REFUNDS: We will honor all refund requests as long as they are made 24 hours or more before the listed start time of the screening. After that, no refunds. Sorry.

HOW DOES A SECRET MOVIE CLUB 2019 SINGLE SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS WORK: If you buy an SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS (access to all movies we’re showing within one season or multi-seasons as listed on the pass), you get entrance into every single movie we show throughout that time (including any special events we may announce at a later time; so your value may increase!). We offer SPRING and SUMMER 2019 SEASON PASSES individually (for example, if you know you will be able to attend in Spring but not Summer; a great deal at $6 a ticket) and a MULTI-SEASON PASS (all 83 events in both Spring & Summer 2019, our best deal at $4.50 per ticket). These passes are available through the following EVENTBRITE LINK:

https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com

If you decide to buy the SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS and have already bought a series pass or individual ticket, just write us: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com and we’ll issue you a refund for the individual tickets you bought so you can get the all-access pass.

Each pass is available for purchase online until the start of the first event of the season that would be covered by that pass.

With the ALL-ACCESS PASS, we generate a special list with your name on it. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket.

HOW DOES A SERIES PASS WORK: If you buy an Individual Series Pass, you gain entrance to all movies in that series. This is our next best deal at $9 a ticket after an All-Access pass at $4.50 or $6.00 a ticket. If you want to see all the movies in a particular series but not necessarily all the movies in a season this is the way to go.

The price of each Series Pass depends on how many movies we show in that series. So for instance if we are showing 7 movies in the series, the pass would cost $63 (or $9 per movie). If we are showing 4 movies in that series, the pass would cost $36, and so on.

You can buy the Series Pass through any individual Eventbrite link for a movie in that series. Then, we generate a special list with your name on it. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket.

MOVIEPASS AND OTHER PASSES LIKE IT (as of February 2019): While we do accept and want you to use your special passes, we advise all moviegoers to first check the current rules and regulations of their pass to make sure their pass is accepted for our events. Secret Movie Club and the Vista Theater are not associated with nor responsible for any changes in policy on the part of any outside vendor offering a pass to Los Angeles screenings or any similar service.

CONCESSIONS: The Vista Concessions stand is open for all our events. So you will always have access to popcorn, soda, candy, coffee the works!

PARKING: The Vista has no dedicated parking lot. Thankfully, there is parking in the residential areas around the Vista Theater. Just plan to get to the theater 20 minutes earlier than normal so you have enough time to park, walk to the theater, get your tickets, get in line. Make sure you read the street signs! Hillhurst and Sunset Drive tend to be the best for street parking. Avoid Rosalia and Commonwealth as they have permit-only parking rules. We don’t want any Secret Movie Clubbers getting parking tickets.

SHOWTIMES: We screen our movies before or after the Vista’s official movies. This is why most of our showtimes are either at 11:59pm or between 10am-11am in the morning. Always check the listed showtime before buying your ticket as we do sometimes have to adjust the showtime to accommodate the running time of the movie.

MAILING LIST: We started as a secret email list way back in April of 2016. In respect to our origins, we will always announce our upcoming seasons, special events, and speakers with the ability to get tickets via the email list first before posting to Facebook or anywhere else. If you’d like to get on the secret email list, email us at: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com.

OTHER QUESTIONS: You can always email us at: secretmovieclub@curiousproductions.com . We work to respond asap within receipt of your email. If you don't get a response within 48 hours, please email us again.
