Kurosawa’s dramatic retelling of Shakespeare’s “King Lear” is set in 16th century Japan. Ran tells of the downfall of the once-powerful Ichimonji clan after its patriarch Hidetora decides to give control of his kingdom up to his three sons: Taro, Jiro, and Saburo. Treachery ensues and war erupts. An epic film with a cast of thousands, Ran is a cinematic tour de force with a visual scale that only can be matched by the sonic scale of our Line Magnetic/Auditorium 23 replica Western Electric theater horn sound system. This will be a special night to experience a movie the way it was intended by its creator. The film will begin at 8:30pm. Hope to see you there.
