Going to see "Godzilla, King of the Monsters!"?


August 06

If you’re going to see Godzilla, King of the Monsters! tonight or the double bill of Young Frankenstein and Frankenstein on Friday, both at The Hospitals of Providence East Campus, here are a few things you need to know:

• The lot is on the southwest corner of the campus, parallel with Loop 375 and Joe Battle Boulevard.

• The entrance will be via TIERRA CORTEZ AVENUE, which can be accessed from northbound Joe Battle Boulevard and Pebble Hills Boulevard from the east, and other tributaries (see map). Please don’t use the main entrance off of Joe Battle as it needs to be kept clear for emergency vehicles.

• It’s a gravel lot. Lines will be painted so vehicles can be parked in a checkerboard pattern to better serve our social distancing measures.

• The 32x18-foot screen, which is mounted on a portable stage, will be on the north side of the lot, facing south.

• There will be eight portable restrooms on the west side of the lot, parallel to Loop 375/Joe Battle.

• Tickets are $25 per vehicle, available at plazaclassic.com/schedule or the door (if it’s not sold out).

• Admission begins at 7:30 pm, a few minutes earlier if we’re ready and we have a line.

• Programming starts at 8:30 pm

• Bring your own food. There will be no food concessions on site.

• Please follow social distancing guidelines — no chairs outside of your vehicle (you can sit in the back of your truck, SUV, van, etc., but please wear a mask). Wear a mask if you have to walk to the portable restrooms. Wash your hands. Stay six feet apart from anyone outside of your carload.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters! is the 1956, “Americanized” version of the 1954 Japanese original, and is credited with launching the franchise, which is still going today. It downplays some of the nuclear attack aspects of the original. We are showing it 75 years to the date after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.
