I’ve added a new theater to the Bayflicks list, VIZ Cinema. Located near Japantown and the Kabuki, the Viz seats only 143 and projects film and HD video. It has THX-certified sound. It specializes in Japanese cinema.
In fact, I found out about it from a comment on my The Bad Sleep Well piece. Thanks, Brian, for bringing this to my attention.
Next Friday, the Viz launches a week-long series on Kurosawa’s crime films. Expect more in my next newsletter.
June 6: I’ve altered this post to correct a factual error. When I originally wrote this, I mistakenly thought that the VIZ only projected video.
