    Subtitled kabuki films aim to entertain tourists

    • Description

      The Yomiuri ShimbunKYOTO — Shochiku Co. is showing an English-subtitled version of its Cinema Kabuki movie series at a theater in Kyoto through Nov. 2, as nighttime entertainment for foreign visitors.

      The film shows a performance of the popular play “Renjishi” (The Father and Son Shishi Lions), and is running from 9 p.m. on weekdays at MOVIX Kyoto theater in the ancient capital’s Shin-Kyogoku district.

      Shochiku, a Tokyo-based company that produces kabuki performances as well as movies, was inspired by comments from many foreign tourists that there are not a lot of nighttime entertainment spots in Kyoto. To meet this demand, the 55-minute program is being offered during after-dinner hours for ¥1,500.
