One of legendary director Akira Kurosawa's most acclaimed films, Rashomon features an innovative narrative structure and a thoughtful exploration of reality versus perception.

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune—to the Western world. — Criterion Collection

In a nod to both the Coolidge's long track record of showcasing innovative, boundary-pushing works of film art as well as the start of construction on our expanded space, the theme of this year’s Big Screen Classics series will be Groundbreaking Films! We look forward to sharing more information about our expansion project throughout the year and hope you will join us for one or more of this year's Big Screen Classics the way they were meant to be seen -- on the big screen!
