Tickets no longer available for this showtime.


In 1942, Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita catapulted his seaplane off of a submarine, flew over the Oregon coast, and became the only pilot to bomb the U.S. mainland during WWII.  He never dreamed he would one day be invited back to the region, where he would begin a lifelong friendship with the people of a small Oregon town. SAMURAI IN THE OREGON SKY chronicles this reconciliation, and how Mr. Fujita came to refer to his former target as his “second home.”

This online screening of SAMURAI IN THE OREGON SKY is co-presented by the Hollywood Theatre and the Oregon Historical Society. The film was produced with the support of the Hollywood Theatre's fiscal sponsorship program.
