YokohamaKogane-cho still keeps this great small, twin-screen cinema. “Jack” is a revival theater featuring old films, directors and actors, and hosts film festivals time to time. “Betty,” the other one, specializes in screening new films for single-theater release. The cinema is known for its excellent selection of good films that attract hard-core fans, and boasts membership of over 1,000 people. The cinema had been called “Yokohama Toei Meiga-Za” until 1991 when the building was rebuilt and re-opened, so its history expands as long as 60 years.

The filmgoers’ favorite “Jack & Betty” will present a riverside open-air film festival. Try new movie / urban experience in the pleasant breeze and noise from the town alongO-okagawaRiver.

A stroll-type of cinema will appear in Isezaki-cho and Kogane-cho. Artists gather there night after night for “Laboratory at Night,” and look out for any border between the art and film. Participants include Yuichiro Tamura, videographer who “collect fragments of information and reorganize them,” and Tsubasa Kato who “drags down structures,” along with many other prominent artists assembled for the event (names to be confirmed and announced on the site). What will come out of their creation is anyone’s guess – come and join these spectacle nights!
