How many of you celebrate Godzilla Day? Today (Nov. 3) marks the day Toho International Inc. rolled out the big kaiju all the way back in 1954. So, in true kaiju loving fashion, we are here to celebrate the big guy’s 67th birthday. He doesn’t look half bad for his age.
In order to celebrate in true Alamo Drafthouse Theater’s fashion they are screening the original Gojira film in 4K! These screenings are taking place today at select Drafthouse locations, so be sure to check drafthouse.com for details.
In addition, from November 5 -11 Alamo Drafthouse’s will screen Godzilla vs. Hedorah, and Shin Godzilla. During the week of November 12 they will hold a double-feature of two Heisei era classics that have never been shown theatrically in North America. This is a totally unique experience that hasn’t occurred before in the big guy’s history.
To add to all the Kaiju mayhem love, Mondo has a fantastic line-up of Godzilla goodies. From prints to records to collectible toys! Make sure to check those out below. The collectible drop will begin on Nov. 3 at 11 a.m. central. Head over to Mondoshop.com and prepare to make your order when the items drop. If you know Mondo, you know these are extremely limited and sell out quickly. Good luck!
If you still haven’t had your fill of Godzilla, make sure to head over to YouTube to check out the Godzilla documentary series Godzilla Chomp. While on the Godzilla YouTube channel make sure to also check out the 1978 Godzilla animated series and the Godziban kaiju puppet show.
