Kinuyo Tanaka (1909-1977), who made his movie debut at the age of 14, gained popularity as a pretty daughter in the era of silent movies, and even after becoming a talkie, he made numerous hits such as "The Neighbor's Wife" and "Aizen Katsura". Became the top actress of Shochiku. Eventually, he met Kenji Mizoguchi and opened his eyes to the acting sect. I have completed my life as an actress.
Kinuyo Tanaka, who has always had an adventurous spirit, traveled to the United States for three months as a Japan-US goodwill art envoy in 1949 under occupation, and made his directorial debut in the 1950s, working on six works. In the movie world, which is a male society, his achievements as an actress as well as a director should be talked about in this era.

The Kawakita Film Memorial Hall in Kamakura City was opened in April 2010 at the site of the former residence of Nagamasa Kawakita and Kashiko, who greatly contributed to the development of the film, in anticipation of the development of film culture in Kamakura City. At this memorial hall, you can display movie materials, screen movies, browse movie-related 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 Sukiya-zukuri and is in harmony with the surrounding environment. The wooden fence has been restored to its original appearance, and the bright and wide opening of the exhibition room overlooks the lush garden, creating a calm atmosphere in the ancient city of Kamakura.

Although it is close to Komachi-dori, which is bustling every day, it is located in a quiet environment that you can't imagine just entering the back, and you can spend a relaxing time like the ancient city of Kamakura. In addition, although the lights of the movie theater have now gone out of Kamakura City, the theater equipped with a film projector regularly shows masterpieces from the east and west, so you can enjoy the movie on a big screen. ..
