[ Story ]

Sato Koichi who served as cinematographer on Silent Revolution and YUKIGUNI coordinated, directed, and shot this documentary. Narration is by actor Osugi Ren who passed away suddenly in 2018.
Green House, a cinema in the city of Sakata in Yamagata Prefecture, is purported to be the "world's top theater". Established by Sato Kyuichi, who became manager at the young age of 20, the theater was destroyed by a fire in 1976. More than 40 years later, people who once gathered there articulate their recollections of the theater.
