Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa (Japan, 1954, 207 min.). One of the most thrilling and influential movie epics of all time, Seven Samurai tells the story of a 16th-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride from Akira Kurosawa—featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura—seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions, and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.
Free admission. Tickets available in-person the day of the screening.
This event is part of Samurai Saturdays.
