PERFECT DAYS button to buy tickets
PERFECT DAYS

Rated PG (2h 5m)
Drama. Subtitled Japanese.
button to watch trailer
Hirayama feels content with his life as a toilet cleaner in Tokyo. Outside of his structured routine, he cherishes music on cassette tapes, reads books and takes photos. Through unexpected encounters, he reflects on finding beauty in the world. Starring Koji Yakusho. Directed by Wim Wenders. Oscar nominee for Best International Film!

Paul's review:
When the lights come up and the credits roll, audience members will either enjoy the tranquil piano music or bolt for the door. Wim Wenders seems to fracture his audience between those who can roll with a story tied to visual wanderings or those who need their entertainment a little more structured, like the Tokyo toilet cleaner, Hirayama. He works the streets and parks of Tokyo, toilet brush in hand, work ethic set to 100%, moving gracefully and invisibly from one restroom to the next. He breaks his day up with visits to his favorite bathhouse, restaurants, and trees. PERFECT DAYS is a movie of perfect moments; intimate moments. We might be content to join him (and Wenders) for his day-to-day of dappled light, favorite haunts, and the ability to celebrate small miracles. But the story develops, and we feel the disruption to his perfect world. Continue reading >> here.

ABOUT DARKSIDE CINEMA
Open since April 1, 2005, Darkside Cinema is the only independently owned and operated movie theater in Corvallis. We play first run, indie, international, and documentary films. Some of you will remember our previous arthouse movie theater on Jackson Street: Avalon Cinema, open from 1997 to 2007.

Ask us about inexpensive on-screen advertising for your local business or non-profit organization. And ask us about renting the theater for private screenings, birthday parties, meetings or seances or practical jokes or ... ?

We proudly support these organizations and hope you will, too:
