The Kamakura City Kawakita Film Museum was opened in April 2010 on the site of the former residence of Nagamasa and Kashiko Kawakita, who greatly contributed to the development of cinema, with the hope of developing film culture in Kamakura City. In this memorial hall, you can view movie-related materials and search the web, including exhibitions and screenings of movie materials. 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 former appearance, and the bright and wide opening of the exhibition room offers a view of the lush green garden, creating a calm atmosphere of 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 won't feel like you are just inside, and you can spend a relaxing time like the ancient city of Kamakura. In addition, the lights of movie theaters have gone out in Kamakura City, but the theater equipped with a film projector regularly screens masterpieces from all over the world, and you can enjoy movies on a big screen. .
