King Kong vs. Godzilla 50th Anniversary

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the release of King Kong vs. Godzilla, and they're celebrating it properly in California:
Join Bay Area Film Events and your host Balrok from Creepy KOFY Movietime for the 50th anniversary screening of KING KONG VS. GODZILLA!

And as a titanic second feature see GODZILLA, MOTHRA, KING GHIDORAH ALL-OUT ATTACK!

The Historic Bal Theatre will be transformed into a giant monster battlefield!

BAFE will also be presenting a tribute to Toho Special Effects Designer Yasuyuki Inoue. Mr. Inoue designed some of the most iconic images from Toho's classic films from 1954 through 1985.

Special guests for the evening, live via video conference, will be Godzilla experts Ed Godziszewski and Steve Ryfle. Ed and Steve have been responsible for the extras and audio commentaries on Godzilla and Toho DVDs from Classic Media, Media Blasters and others. Steve has authored the book Japan's Favorite Mon-Star: The Unauthorized Biography of "The Big G" and Ed produced The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Godzilla. Both are working together now on a book about Toho director Ishirô Honda.

We will also have prizes, merchandise, displays and more!

It is an evening to celebrate everything Godzilla, with a certain giant ape crashing the party!!
Tickets are available now at Ticket Leap!
Note: I made some factual and spelling corrections to the press release above, and added the hyperlinks to provide background and context.

Here's a cool fan-edited trailer for King Kong vs. Godzilla:

And the trailer for 2001's Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack:

Looks like good times.
