The 2014 version of Godzilla is essentially a CGI attack on the eyes. There’s explosions and serious acting going on from Bryan Cranston but the Wexner Center is taking a step back from the Hollywood-ized version of the Japanese classic.

The Japanese movie was intended to represent the consequences of the destruction of nuclear¬†war (it was released after the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki). Stick around after and you can also catch another installment of the Wex Drive In Series (and some pizza) showing Rear Window for free on the Wexner Plaza.
