NEW PEOPLE proudly hosts our very first SENIOR MOVIE DAY teaming up with Kimochi-kai and Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California. We have invited 125 senior guests from the Japanese American community to view the award-winning film HULA GIRLS this coming Monday at 12:15 pm.
Complementary tickets to the movie have already been distributed among Kimochi-kai and JCCCNC, and we look forward to a full house for this screening event. NEW PEOPLE is grateful for Japantown and the Japanese American community for supporting us through our construction and opening process, and this is a small gesture of our appreciation. Thank you!
Based on a true story, HULA GIRLS is a heartwarming comedy about coal miners’ daughters who took a once-in-a-lifetime chance to escape their monotonous lives, only to become unwitting heroes to their depressed mining town as well as the whole of Japan. A must see!
