This will be held on Sunday, March 3 and will feature 3 of the films of famed Japanese director, Akira Kurosawa:

Kurosawa's films are as alive and entertaining today as they were when first released to western audiences in the 50s and 60s and this is a rare opportunity to see them on the big screen.
