Wakao Ayako Film Retrospective

This month at the Jinbocho Theater, close to Meiji University, a retrospective of films starring Wakao Ayako is taking place. It is titled, “Mitsumeteitai! Wakao Ayako” (Gotta see it! Wakao Ayako). Twenty films will be screened three or four times throughout the month and many are hard to find orĀ unavailableĀ for home viewing. The films range from her early days as an idol-star in the fifties to her place as a more serious leading actress in the sixties. Tickets are 1200 yen or 1000 yen for students. This is a rare opportunity to see one of the great film stars of Japan at various points in her career.

Since I am so close to the theater I plan on going to most of the screenings. Anyone in the area who plans on attending I would enjoy meeting up with. Until next time, Cheers!
