Dancers displeased with the anti-dance law and the shutdown of a popular club in Osaka are taking their arguments to the screens this month in a documentary titled “Save The Club Noon.”

Noon, located in the Nakazaki-cho district of Osaka, was forced to shut down in April 2012 after local police claimed the club violated the 1948 fueihō entertainment business control law. Eight were arrested in the case, their charges being that the club allowed approximately 20 people to dance on its premises “without permission.”
