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.
