All of Tokyo's Wald 9 Screens to Show Evangelion: 3.0 at Midnight
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 theater has announced that all nine of its screens will show the Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo (Evangelion Shin Gekijō-ban Q Quickening) movie at midnight on November 17. The Shinjuku Wald 9 movie theater has a total of over 1,800 seats in the facility. On the same day of the movie's release, Shinjuku Wald 9 will also screen, for the first time in a theater, Evangelion: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone and Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance (the latest versions of these two previous films) for a limited time.
On the perimeter of the Marui Annex that houses the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater, a “Shinjuku Eva Festival” will be held. The collaboration festival will begin at 5:00 p.m. on November 16.
The previous film, Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance, earned 4 billion yen (about US$50 million) in box-office revenue in 2009. The title of the third film was first revealed with a teaser that ran at the end of the second film's theatrical release. The "Q" or "Kyū" in the third film's title is a wordplay in Japanese; the first three films' subtitles are the names for the three classical movements (Jo-Ha-Kyū or Introduction-Exposition-Climax) of traditional Japanese music such as gagaku and Noh.
