Tears and laughter abound in this charming love letter to classic cinema; Takeuchi’s follow-up to his hugely successful Thermae Romae franchise. Make sure you look out for the staggering number of chic costume changes!

Set in the Protected content , at a time when the Japanese cinema industry faced a decline with the rising popularity of television, a struggling assistant director Kenji (Kentaro Sakaguchi) is looking for his big break. His position being little more than an errand boy, he whiles away his free time at a theatre watching long-forgotten black-and-white films. A particular favourite of his is The Tomboy Princess, with the heroine Princess Miyuki (Haruka Ayase) being a main attraction. One day, an auspicious power outage causes the monochrome object of his admiration to magically step off the screen and into Kenji’s technicolour world. Just like her onscreen persona, real-life Miyuki proves to be a feisty character, bossing Kenji around to his absolute delight as he introduces her to the beauty of a world in colour. Does their romance have a future?

Hope to see you there!

PS Seating is unallocated, so join early if you want to sit with the group...I will be going in at 18:07.

This invite is automatically sent to all members. If it is not your kind of event/film this time, then maybe next time.
Going to the cinema on your own? - Maybe others want to see the same film, so please create a one-off activity to place your own films if you want people to join you.

Hope to see you there!
