Japan's oldest movie studio and theater operator, Nikkatsu once operated 70% of all movie theaters in Japan. The company struggled after world war 2 and was reduced to producing soft-core pornography in the 1970s. In 1993 Nikkatsu filed for bankruptcy and was rescued by Namco, which injected 3 billion yen (US$28 million) into the company. In 1997 Nikkatsu became a subsidiary of Namco.
