CJS Movie Night: GOZU

While our movie nights are usually the third Friday of the month we've had to change it slightly this time...please note the date.

Thursday, March 13, 2008: 7:00 PM

The Canada Japan Society is proud to present a screening of Takashi Miike’s 2003 yakuza mind bender “Gozu". Yakuza foot soldier Minami is uncomfortable about whacking his mentor Ozaki who’s insane behaviour has become a liability to his crew, but when Ozaki disappears Minami’s quest for his old gang brother goes straight down the rabbit hole into a surreal world of lactation, cow-headed gods, body snatching and gender shifting...

Midnight Eye describes it as "An utterly bizarre excursion into the realms of post logic...far out and at times riotously funny." It's Miike at his strangest.

For the post-party this time we'll be heading over to the JAVA pub night at ALIO (Dundas and Bay).

ICHIMOKUKAI: "We've Moved Again!"

Ichimokukai, literally "First Thursday Meeting", is the Canada Japan Society's legendary social night, held on the first Thursday of every month.

We've been going strong for over 12 years with lots of great people, door prizes and food and drink specials. Whether you're interested in informal networking, practicing your English or Japanese, or just meeting others with a connection or interest in Japan, it's a fun time had by all.

Though saddened by the demise of our last venue (IZAKAYA), the CJS has moved on and are happy to announce our new location for Ichimokukai. ALIO at 108 Dundas St. West, just West of Bay.

We've still got dicounted pricing on Japanese beer and special food pricing just for us!

Time: 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: ALIO
Street: 108 Dundas Street West

Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.
