May 3

Japan | 2001 | 105 Minutes | Shûsuke Kaneko

Pre-show Godzilla burlesque performance by Scarlett O'Hairdye. Godzilla returns to badass bad-guy status, this time with the ultra-evil look of no pupils, forcing a Japanese mystic to summon the sacred Yamato (aka Earth Guardians): Mothra, Ghidorah and Baragon. Time for a giant monster smackdown!

Godzilla vs Destoroyah

May 2

Japan | 1995 | 103 Minutes | Takao Okawara

The final film of the Heisi era (aka the "Vs. Series") finds the monster's nuclear core on the road to meltdown, just as Godzilla's must face his most powerful enemy, a nefarious creature from the deep known as The Oxygen Destroyer. This was originally intended to be the final Godzilla film from Toho, until 1998's American version caused such outrage that they quickly resuscitated the series.

The first female beast in the Toho giant-monster line-up, Mothra appears a giant larva worshipped by island tribesmen and guarded by inch-high twin sisters (cute!), then transforms into a beautiful giant moth and takes on the Japanese air force. Original Japanese version with English subtitles.
