UCSB Pollock Theater

This screening of the classic film "Seven Samurai" (1954), directed by Akira Kurosawa, is offered as part of UCSB Reads 2017.

In the UCSB Reads 2017 book, Into the Beautiful North, 19-year old Nayeli is inspired after watching "The Magnificent Seven" (1960) to head north to recruit seven men to protect her Mexican village from bandidos. "The Magnificent Seven" is an American Western remake of "Seven Samurai."

The screening of "Seven Samurai" is free but a reservation is recommended to guarantee a seat.

Co-sponsored by the UCSB Library & the Carsey-Wolf Center.
