“Tokusatsu Theater” started in the vicinity of Phoenix, AZ. Fans have gotten together monthly (sometimes at theaters, sometimes at private residences) to watch vintage, rare sci-fi & superheroes from Japan. The premise came about in July 2011, when former film-critic Damon Foster decided to share his plethora of Asian productions from the 20th century. “I’m a bottomless pit of old Far Eastern productions– VHS tapes, and DVDs. These foreign fantasies just collect dust on shelves. So I decided to start showing these cheesy things to people. And thus, Tokusatsu Theater was born”. The monthly gathering (of martial arts, beer and giant monsters) focuses strictly on non-CGI, non-HD productions. Just old-school special effects and amusement from decades passed.
This is taking place at Film Bar in Phoenix on Friday, August 9th and admission is $8
