Jiro Dreams of Sushi (82 minutes, Rated PG, starts 7:30pm. Doors and bar open 6:45.)



JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father.

This screening is free and open to the public. The theater seats 450+ so we’re not kidding: invite friends, family, acquaintances, coworkers, origami enthusiasts, guilds, Pokémon hunters, suburbanites, city-dwellers, legislators, artists - anyone who enjoys an inspiring and thoughtful look at the creative process of design!
