"Godzilla Night 2"
Bal Theatre's second annual monster-movie bash celebrates everybody's favorite radioactive beast with an action-packed double-feature. In 1991's Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, the titular three-headed dragon is set against Godzilla by a group of time-travelers who declare war on the present—with devastating potential effects on the future. The second film, 1992's Godzilla vs. Mothra, serves as an unconventional eco-allegory. Gentle nature spirit Mothra battles her more sinister counterpart Battra, and it's only a matter of time before scrap-happy Godzilla enters the fray.
Hosted by Balrok from Channel 20's Creepy KOFY Movietime and monster enthusiast Kyle Yount from the podcast Kaijucast, the evening also features live kaiju-inspired music from Big Pimp Jones. American-born actor Robert Scott Field—recognizable to audience members as the android M-11 in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah—will call in from Japan, as vendors, displays, and Godzilla-themed prizes fill the theater like an actor fills a monstrous rubber suit.
The Historic Bal Theatre
Since it opened in 1946, the 800-seat Bal Theatre has continually hosted a wide array of film screenings, comedy shows, and musical acts on its stage, remaining one of the few American theatres of its era never to have shut down. Despite the building's vintage art-deco vibe, the theater boasts a concert-series sound system, digital projection, and three-dimensional seats, immersing audiences in a heightened sensory experience.
