The Japan Information and Culture Center of the Embassy of Japan and DC Anime Club will screen Kôzô Kusuba's Doraemon: Nobita no Kyoryu (Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur) movie for free on November 14 at 6:30 p.m. in Washington, D.C. Doraemon is the robotic cat character from the future that the Fujiko Fujio manga duo created, and Nobita is the hapless boy that Doraemon watches over. The movie remakes the first theatrical Doraemon feature ever made, the original Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur from 1980.
