The Castro Theatre in San Francisco was the place to be November 17-23, 2004, in honor of Godzilla's 50th birthday The best Godzilla Film Fest we have known about took place there. This is the 16 page program book from the event sponsored by Bay Area Film Events which showed 20 Godzilla or Kaiju Films.
The special guests were great:Russ Tamblyn (the first ever appearance in regard to War of the Gargantuas), Hiroshi Koizumi who was in Godzilla Raids Again, and many other Godzilla movies (he reprised his role in Mothra 1961 42 years later in Tokyo Sos), Tsutomu Kitagawa (the latest actor to don the Godzilla suit), Jerry Ito best remembered for his role of the vile Clark Nelson in Mothra 1961), Akira Kubo played many roles in Toho Films including Matago, Gorath, Son of Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters.
There are biographies of all the guests in the program. Also every film shown is given several paragraphs of synopsis and commentary by August Ragone of Henshin! Online. The center page has photos from some of the Godzilla Movies. The cover illustration is Mark Nagata.
Honoring the 65th Birthday of the King of the Monsters; this roomy tote bag can carry lots o' stuff. Its made of high quality black canvas and embossed in gold glitter. The bag is approximately 15 inches by 17 inches. It comes in its clear protective bag.
This Shin Godzilla writing pen was available in limited quantities at some of the Toho Cinemas showing Shin Godzilla. Due to the popularity of the movie most of the theater exclusive items were sold out within days of the opening of the movie in Japan on July 29, 2016. The Shin Godzilla figure on top of the pen is soft vinyl and is a nicely detailed figure considering it is about 1 3/4 inches high I especially love the long tail. It includes a foot print replica which says Shin Godzilla in Japanese on a chain. It is black ink and the length of the pen from the head of the figure is about 8 inches. It comes in its original packaging.
From the Bandai Movie Monster Series comes the 2017 version of Burning Godzilla. This is Godzilla as seen in the Toho Movie Godzilla vs Destroyer 1995. Burning Godzilla stands about 6 inches tall and comes in mint condition with tag.
