The Hidden Fortress

When: Sun., Jan. 7, 6 p.m. 2018

Any chance to catch a film by Akira Kurosawa on the big screen, you ought to take it. But there’s an additional enticement to see 1958’s The Hidden Fortress, by the Japanese master who gave us Seven Samurai and Ran: This comedic adventure about a soldier and two quarrelsome sidekicks in feudal Japan escorting a princess-in-disguise to a hideaway was a huge influence on young George Lucas as he penned Star Wars. See Hidden Fortress, with its glorious widescreen black-and-white visuals, tonight and any Sunday this month at Regent Square Theater, where it heralds the return of Pittsburgh Filmmakers’ Sunday classics series. -Bill O'Driscoll
