Presented in the original Japanese with English subtitles.

Widely considered the greatest anime ever made, and most definitely responsible for the explosion of the genre’s popularity in North America, AKIRA remains just as popular and impressive today as it was when it was first released in 1988. Maybe this is due to its incredible story. Possibly, it’s due to its jaw-dropping animation. Or maybe, it’s just because it features the absolute coolest motorcycles ever imagined.

Regardless, the story of a gang of young street kids who get tangled up in something *much* bigger after a member of their crew begins exhibiting psychic powers is still mind-bogglingly good. Secret government projects, apocalyptic scenarios, futuristic cities, and teenage biker gangs… Add all that together and you end up with a film that had to develop new animation techniques just to finish its production. And you, friends, now have the opportunity to see it as it was meant to be seen: in its original language (with subtitles, of course) projected on a giant screen.

AKIRA is not your everyday cartoon. This is the type of movie that comes along once in a looong while and shakes everything up — and we mean everything. Do yourself a favor and come take the ride with us.
