Celebrate some of the best ever names in Japanese Cinema with Academy Cinema's Japanese Director Showcase!

Whether you love the devastating dramas of Ozu and Mizoguchi, the cult favourite horrors of Miike and Fukasaku, the inventive anime of Kon or the stunning action from Kurosawa, their eclectic selection should have something for all to enjoy!

For the duration of the Japanese Director Showcase, Academy Cinemas and Tanuki (and Tanuki's Cave) are partnering to provide you with a $50 Meal and a Movie Deal! 

This deal includes: 


Vegetarian options are available! Please note that the deal will be exclusively available at Tanuki's (street level) for films: Yojimbo, Audition, Tokyo Godfathers, Cure, Battle Royale and Late Spring.
