Short day = short films

December 21 is the Winter Solstice. That makes this Saturday the shortest, darkest day of the year. So why not celebrate with a bunch of short, dark films?

Jazz Rags

Late last month, the Off Broadway vintage clothing store and costume shop in Nob Hill paid tribute to an appearance by actress Tippi Hedren at the KiMo Theatre. They did so by turning the store’s display window into a fashion show inspired by Hedren’s iconic appearances in classic Alfred Hitchcock movies. Keeping on the cinematic tip, Off Broadway has now transformed their Central Ave. storefront into a salute to director Baz Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby (hitting theaters this Friday, May 10). The display features authentic 1920s fashions inspired by the jazzy film. Check it out throughout May at 3110 Central SE.

Ran , Don’t Walk

The KiMo Theatre is honoring the work of Japanese cinematic master Akira Kurosawa with a seven-film tribute. The chronological retrospective begins this Thursday, June 14, with the 1949 crime drama Stray Dog. In it, the legendary Toshiro Mifune plays a rookie detective whose gun gets stolen during a sweltering Tokyo heat wave. Things continue on June 21 with the film that brought Kurosawa his first international acclaim, 1950’s award-winning Rashomon. That historical drama will be followed by 1954’s action-packed Seven Samurai (June 28), 1958’s Hidden Fortress (July 12), 1961’s Yojimbo (July 26), 1963’s High and Low (Aug. 2) and 1985’s Ran (Aug. 9). Films start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 adults, $5 students and seniors.
