In the 13 years I’ve been running this travelling movie theater, time and again, I’ve seen how much people love cinema. This time around, we have collaborated with the Tokyo International Film Festival to create a happy place where we can share that bubble of love and fully immerse ourselves in the world of movies. Join us, and don’t be afraid to share a personal story or two about a certain film on your mind. (I once watched a film that drastically changed my life.) We will be waiting for you at Minato City Shiba Park, where you can also enjoy a full view of Tokyo Tower.
