The College of Central Florida is excited and proud to announce the 60th anniversary celebration of its International Film Series.

Showings will be followed by an online scholarly film talk each Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. Films may contain mature content.
The two biggest monsters of all time battle in this thrilling 1962 adventure classic. An underhanded pharmaceutical company goes to a remote tropical island to steal King Kong for advertising purposes while a submarine crew inadvertently unleashes Godzilla from a block of ice far below the sea. When both destructive monsters descend on Tokyo, it’s a fight that holds the future of mankind in the balance.
This is a special B-movie Celebration event screening at the Ocala Drive-In.
Screening locations may be subject to change due to COVID-19 restrictions and will be updated on CF International Films Series website as needed.
