Seven-Samurai-movie-poster-1020460000Directed by Akira Kurosawa

207 Mins.

Marking the seventh month (July), this month’s Member Monday was drawn from a list and internally voted upon,  of films featuring Seven in the title.

Seven Samurai is a 1954 Japanese period adventure drama.  The film takes place in 1587 during the Warring States Period of Japan. It follows the story of a village of farmers that hire seven masterless samurai (ronin) to combat bandits who will return after the harvest to steal their crops.

Seven Samurai has been described as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made and is one of a select few Japanese films to become widely known in the West for an extended period of time. It is the subject of both popular and critical acclaim; it was voted onto the top three of the Sight & Sound critics’ list of greatest films of all time in 1982, and onto the directors’ top ten films lists in the 1992 and 2002 polls.

The Bus Movie
Jul 30 @ 7:00 pm

BusPoster copyDirected by Damon Ristau

This is the remarkable story of a vehicle that became an icon. Anyone who has ever driven a Volkswagen Bus already knows that it’s a nostalgic tale of freedom, love, friendship, breakdowns and adventures.

‘The Bus’ playfully explores how a post-WWII German utility vehicle evolved into a cultural icon that represents freedom and the open road; defining and connecting generations of fun lovers everywhere. Beginning in Germany with the vehicle’s creation, into a wild ride that changes the world forever, ‘The Bus’ is an adventure from beginning to end. From Wolfsburg to Hollywood, Burning Man to Baja, people from all walks of life share their stories and passion in ‘The Bus’.

The central thread of the documentary follows a vagabond travelling musician the tours and lives out of his split screen ’65 Bus playing gigs along the way.  The movie will spill over into life as Dave Manning accompanies Director Damon Ristau for this unique Nelson screening and plays a set for us post-screening.

If you have a Bus, Vanagon or Eurovan, please be sure to bring it out and park at the old Extra Foods parking lot at 5:30 for a Bus style tailgate cookout before the show.
