Juzo Itami: Tampopo
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
(Juzo Itami, 1985)
Dubbed the first “ramen western,” Tampopo follows a struggling roadside noodle shop owner who is driven to make the perfect bowl of soup. Her game improves considerably with the encouragement and expertise of a trucker-cum-gourmet who stumbles into her shop one rainy evening. A surprise art-house hit, Tampopo remains an odd and hilarious celebration of two great sensual pleasures—food and sex. (115 mins., 4K DCP)
TAMPOPO RAMEN | 6 PM
For a bit more on your ticket price, pick up a to-go bowl of ramen from Fukuryu Ramen after the screening. Yum!
