What is Cinema Kabuki?

Kabuki, with origins dating back to the 1600s, has remained steeped in tradition while also constantly innovating.
With gorgeous costumes, stunning makeup, and powerful dramas, kabuki has been appreciated as the ultimate theatrical art form in Japan which has excited and impressed its people for centuries.
It has had tremendous influence on a wide range of entertainments including theater and movies worldwide.
Live productions, featuring some of today's greatest kabuki stars, are now being filmed with the highest resolution cameras for screening in cinemas around the world on state-of-the-art digital projection systems with six-channel surround sound.
