Will appear at conventions and art house theatres.
Manga Entertainment has informed us that they have decided not to go ahead with a large theatrical release of the Evangelion movies. Instead Manga will be releasing the DVD and VHS versions sometime in the summer. Theatrically, it
will be available for some anime conventions and art house theatres, etc.
