Cigarette Burns Cinema and Zipangu Fest Present A Creature Feature Double Bill In 35mm And Full Extra Widescreen TohoScope!

Cigarette Burns Cinema and Zipangu Fest present a Creature Feature Double Bill in 35mm and full extra widescreen TohoScope!
Cigarette Burns Cinema is very excited to be teaming up with the UK's favourite Japanese film festival bursts back into 2012 for a monstrous retro kaiju double bill collaboration.
On Wednesday August 22nd 2012, horror, sci-fi and kaiju fans can catch this unique screening of both King Kong vs. Godzilla and Matango, Fungus of Terror, both showing in their English language versions, at the Prince Charles Cinema in Central London.
This double whammy from the legendary director Ishiro Honda, creator of Godzilla and the mastermind behind some of Japan's most inventive and memorable apocalyptic visions, will be a unique opportunity to enjoy both films as they were meant to be seen, on 35mm and in full widescreen TohoScope, on one of London's biggest screens.
King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) sees the world's two most monumental movie monsters go head-to-head, slugging it out in their first ever colour widescreen outing. The film remains the most commercially successful of all the Godzilla films to date.
Matango, Fungus of Terror (1963), a hallucinogenic horror adapted from the 1907 short story "The Voice in the Night" by the English author William Hope Hodgson, follows a yacht full of privileged Tokyo-ites who are forced to face their primordial selves after they find themselves washed up on deserted tropical island festooned with clumps of fungus.
This Triple Creature Double Feature programme is sponsored by The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, and will travel to a number of venues around the UK following its London opening.
