<<What is ATG?>>
Established in 1961 with the aim of releasing non-commercial art films, with the predecessor of the <Japan Art Theater Movement Association> promoted by Kashiko Kawakita. Initially, the distribution of foreign films was the main focus, but since the end of the 1960s, the company has also begun to produce Japanese films, providing a framework for making free films despite its low budget. From newcomers such as Nagisa Oshima, Yoshishige Yoshida, Shuji Terayama, Kihachi Okamoto, Nobuhiko Obayashi to veteran directors, it became a place to pursue radical video expressions that major movie companies do not have.

[Requests to visitors]
●Visit at the Kawakita Movie Memorial Museum in KamakuraWe ask all of you to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection. Please read here for requests regarding entry.
The Kawakita Film Memorial Museum in Kamakura City was opened in April 2010 in the wake of the movie culture in Kamakura City, in the former residence of Mr. and Mrs. Kashiko Kawakita, who contributed greatly to the development of movies. At this memorial hall, you can view movie materials, show movies, browse movie materials, and search the Web. We also hold lectures, lectures and workshops throughout the year.
The building is a one-story Japanese-style building that expresses the image of a Sukiya-style structure and is in harmony with the surrounding environment. The board fence has also been restored to its original appearance, and the bright and wide opening of the exhibition room overlooks a lush garden, creating a calm atmosphere in the ancient capital of Kamakura.
Although it is close to Komachi-dori, which is bustling with people every day, it is located in a quiet environment where you can't even think that you are just in the back. Also, although the lights of the movie theaters have disappeared from Kamakura City, the theater equipped with film projectors regularly shows old and modern masterpieces of East and West, so you can enjoy the movie on a big screen. ..
