• San Francisco moviegoers beware—the king of the monsters is stomping into town this weekend. Ishiro Honda’s 1954 classic Godzilla (a.k.a. Gojira) plays at the city’s legendary Castro Theatre on Sunday, June 8. Many remakes and imitators have come in its wake, but there’s still nothing quite like the original. Below, check out Criterion’s Three Reasons video to find out why the film retains so much power.
