Godzilla (1954)

Up from the depths 

Thirty stories high..

Yup, here it is, the original 1954 movie that loosed everyone's favourite irradiated atom-a-saur on the world.

This initial Godzilla, or Gojira outing is a dark movie, exploring themes of guilt, and fear over the use of weapons of mass destruction. Indeed, filmed less than a decade after WW2, Godzilla's destruction of Tokyo likely represents Japanese anxiety over further atomic attacks. 

The majority of the entertaining Toho monster movies which followed from Godzilla's success, were aimed at a younger audience. 

That famous roar? Slowed down playback of a resin coated glove sliding along a double bass string!

Cameo will be screening the 2005 British Film Institute restoration of Godzilla - in 35mm.

Get your Kaiju (suit) on!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
