FILM—As the world prepares for the umpteenth reiteration, Hollywood Theatre reminds everyone why Godzilla mattered in the first place with a 60th anniversary digital restoration of Ishiro Honda's original. It's a frightening example of an entire culture trying to cope with the fact they paid the cost for the world's nuclear ambitions. BR

MUSIC—It's the Mercury's super fun (and FREE) music night Ear Candy—and it's gonna get even super funner with two good-time bands from Seattle! You'll flip over BOAT's balls-out goof pop (which reminds me of the Cure having a very good day), and the Comettes, whose cockles-warming rock reminds me of the Velvet Underground... also having a very good day.
