Evacuate the city at once!   It's a night of monster movie memories!

Giant reptiles, moths, robots, mushroom-people and other odd behemoths have caused worldwide havoc in many Japanese Monster films from the 1950's and 1960's.  American film critics at the time sneered at these wild, unusual films.  A second look at these highly entertaining movies prove these are well crafted works of monster-movie art. While on the surface, these are action-packed monster movies, they also tell the story of Post-War Japan rebuilding itself. Come to the Cinema as film historian/film maker Glenn Andreiev tells the back-story of these films that has worldwide admirers such as Quentin Tarantino, and Steven Spielberg.

Glenn Andreiev is a longtime Long Island filmmaker and film historian. He has lectured at the Cinema Arts Centre, local libraries,
the Northport VA, Molloy College, and at School of Visual Arts, where he holds a BFA in Film. His work as a film-maker has appeared
on CNN, TruTV, Newsday, Howl Arts and The View.   His previous documentaries include The Wendy Wild Story and Lost Emulsion.
