Seven Samurai

New Restoration!

The glorious vigour and strength of this film is presented with such theatrical relish and flair: its energy flashes out of the screen like a sword. – Peter Bradshaw, The Gaurdian

Visually the film makes a tremendous impression. Kurosawa can combine formal grace with dramatic accuracy, and many scenes create a startling pictorial impact. – Tony Richardson, Sight & Sound

One of the most thrilling movie epics of all time, Seven Samurai tells the story of a sixteenth-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.

Please note: Seven Samurai will be shown in two parts with a 10-minute intermission.
