Japan Society (Official)
Architects: Junzo Yoshimura
A Japanese cultural arts organization, Japan Society committed to making film one of its key programs in the early-1970’s. The theatre was opened in 1971, quickly becoming the premier venue for the exhibition of new Japanese cinema as well as career-spanning retrospectives on seminal directors and actors. Boasting a full-fledged, year-round program aimed at cultivating a deep appreciation and understanding of Japanese film culture among American audiences, Japan Society has hosted numerous high-profile premieres and programs over the years that include visits from Akira Kurosawa, Toshiro Mifune, Hideko Takamine, and Nobuhiko Obayashi.
In 2007, Japan Society Film launched JAPAN CUTS: Festival of New Japanese Film, the largest festival of its kind in North America. Equipped to screen 35mm, 16mm, and digital projection, Japan Society’s programming features unparalleled deep dives into Japanese cinema, oftentimes with rare 35mm imports straight from Japan.
