Fond memories of samurai movies shown in the late 70’s. If you needed a Toshiro Mifune fix, this was the place to go.

As I recall this little theater opened in the late 1960s and initially played Mexican films, sort of a replacement for the recently closed Rio Theater (519 J Street). That policy didn’t work so they quckly switched to an art house policy. Landmark later operated it successfully for several years with a calendar rep policy.
