Can't complain about the selections, though if I do see anything, it'll have to be Castle of Cagliostro. Don't really have any interest in seeing Robotech, and have already run through Conqueror of Shamballa and Karas.

So is it 10 dollars per movie or for all four? All four would kick all sorts of ass, but paying 10 bucks to watch movies already available on DVD is just horrible. Really hoping for the former, I cringed at paying 10 dollars a person for the Naruto event.


For certain movies I wouldn't mind paying a little extra like Princess Monokoke and Nausicaa seeing as how I never got the chance to see them in theaters. But Something like Lupin would still be fun to see in the theaters seeing as how it's such a fun movie.

Not very work friendly to schedule this on a Wednesday or Thursday imo.

Bah, the Fathom website doesn't have the event even listed yet.

I'd love to see the FMA movie on a big screen, but I doubt we'll get it. Strange thing, is my local movie theater actively promoted the Naruto movie, but when I checked Fathom's site for locations, it wasn't playing within an hour of my house. Crying or Very sad So I don't hold any hopes for any of these playing in my area, regardless of my theater promoting it.

I might go for the Lupin and FMA. Mostly because seeing anime outside my room or a con is whoa! The theater experience although costly just makes it seem....better...more classic......legendary.

But that's just me! Very Happy

Supposedly you're not just paying for the movie, though. They'll be some exclusive extras to go with it.

Yeah I guess so, but at least normally the events start around 7 or so, so hopefully most people will be off work already. At least I know I will be, and so far the movies are playing at two somewhat close theaters.

I own all of the on DVD besides Robotech and I think I'll take my friends to see Lupin, it's so easy to just pick up and watch. Whereas everything else is a bit tougher, and considering you have to watch 51 episodes of FMA I don't think that's going to happen. Although I might go see that again.....

Such as? I don't know what kind of extras we'll be getting other then the atmosphere of watching an anime film on the big screen.

If you click the "annouced" link in the article, it takes you to a page that says this"

Damn it.....now this blue text is started to screw with me, I could of swore when I rolled over that it was one of those text ad things. I wonder what they could possibly give away/show exclusive trailers or something? Darn now I need to go at least one night.

They showed the Naruto movie in my town, so hopefully there's a good chance they'll have this too. Though really, Lupin III is the only one I'm interested in, and that's only for the novelty of seeing it on the big screen, since I already watched it once and didn't really like it.

The 250 Theaters were buried deep within the bowels of their website:

So is it coming? Or did this event just get canceled? Damn I hope this even still happens I have a bunch of friends who I want to show Castle of Caglistro, hopefully some more information will be available sooner.
