Continue the Godzilla birthday celebration with a spectacular assembly of kaiju! Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and many more make an appearance in this battle of the century.

ON SCREEN: Destroy All Monsters

1968. Directed by Ishirô Honda and Jun Fukuda. Runtime: 88 minutes. Rated G.

The original Godzilla team of director Ishiro Honda, special-effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya, and composer Akira Ifukube reunited for this 1968 kaiju extravaganza, which features no fewer than eleven monsters. Set in the remote future of 1999, when the people of Earth have achieved world peace by confining destructive creatures to Monsterland (until—spoiler alert—an alien race intervenes), Destroy All Monsters mounts a thrilling display of innovative action sequences and memorable images that have made it a favorite for generations of viewers.

ON STAGE: Joshua Cox
Joshua Cox studied Film and Fine Arts at The University of New Orleans. It was there he discovered his love for VFX, which was an enmeshing of the two. Joshua went on to work for Blur Studios in Venice Beach. Blur was working on a Deadpool teaser at the time and game cinematics for Hellgate, Halo, and Warcraft. At Blur he learned how to craft compelling shots and FX. In the mid 2000’s he moved to Portland and there began Directing music videos utilizing visual effects for the band STRFKR. He was awarded a vimeo staffpick for his film “Proximity”. Wanting to get out of the commercial space and make a move over to film he landed a VFX Supervisor role at Refuge VFX. While at Refuge VFX Joshua worked on visuals for Shogun, Fallout, The Periphreal, Cowboy Bebop, The Changeling, Manhunt, DMZ, Superman and Lois, and For All Mankind. He was also approached to be the Production Designer on the futuristic sci-fi feature “the Gallery”, which will be filmed in Oregon and directed by Devin Fei-Fan Tau.
