DUKE CAMPUS—Gojira! The film series that brought about the destruction of thousands of balsa-wood scale buildings returns to its roots with Duke's screening of the restored 1954 Godzilla movie. For years, Americans were subject to a re-edited print with bad dubbing and an Anglo-friendly plotline with Raymond Burr (yes, TV's Perry Mason) providing portentous narration. With almost 40 minutes of footage restored, Godzilla is darker, creepier and more reflective of the post-Hiroshima anxieties that spawned the hit series. It's still great fun with a man in a suit, but now the darkness of the original film can be experienced in all its undubbed glory. The 7 p.m. screening in Griffith Film Theater at Bryan Center on West Campus is free. —Zack Smith

PROGRESS ENERGY CENTER—Do you ever wish you could go back to high school? Well, anyway, here's your chance. Broadway Series South Youth Theatre, North Carolina Theatre's Kids on Broadway and Wake County Public Schools present Disney's High School: The Musical tonight at 8 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium. The musical is a story about two high school students who meet and discover their mutual love of music. Come and share in the true love. Tickets are $16-$41. For more info, visit —Iesha Brown
