Just in time for the post-Thanksgiving bloat, Australian David Cox and Patrick Macias have put together a two-hour rubber-movie-monster fest, with battle scenes from the original "Godzilla," as well as images of creatures including Mothra, Gamera, Gigan, Rodan, Hedorah, King Ghidora and more. If you've ever wondered what strange beasts came before the magic of CGI animation, this is it. Postwar Japanese monster movies revolutionized the genre, before it was revolutionized again. 8:30 p.m. Sat. $5. A.T.A. Gallery, 992 Valencia St., S.F. (415) 648-0654. www.othercinema.com.
