EVANGELION 3.0 and JORMUNGAND Coming to the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton This January!

It's an anime explosion this January as we play two terrific anime films on the big screen!

EVANGELION 3.0 and JORMUNGAND Coming to the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton This January!

Anime fans have found a new home at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton!   After the overwhelming response to our screenings of EVANGELION 2.0, BLUE EXORCIST, AKIRA, and PUELLA MAGI MADOKA 3: REBELLION, we have decided to schedule two new films for January, bringing anime to the big screen, as it was meant to be seen!

On Friday, January 10 at 9:30,  and Sunday, January 12 at 7:00, we're pleased to be screening the newest chapter in the beloved EVANGELION series, EVANGELION 3.0: YOU CAN (NOT) REDO.   The newest chapter finds pilot  Shinji Ikari waking up fourteen years after starting the cataclysmic incident known as the Third Impact, leaving the earth in ruins.  He hasn't aged, but the world around him has, and those he once protected now treat him as a criminal.   Prevented from piloting another mecha, and slowly realizing that the world is not as it seems, Shinji begins spiraling into a mental breakdown that threatens all of humanity.  

Tickets for EVANGELION 3.0 are on sale now. We urge you to reserve yours online today if you want to see this exciting new installment, as our anime screenings sell out very quickly!  

But for those anime fans who have thinner wallets after the holidays, we're excited to announce a free screening of JORMUNGAND on Monday, January 27 at 7:00.   We'll be screening the first four episodes of JORMUNGAND, the action packed adventure of Jonah, a child soldier and the bodyguard of notorious arms dealer Koko.   Despite his distaste for Koko's illegal line of work, Jonah faithfully follows her, hoping that she will lead him to his family's killers.  But Koko isn't your average arms dealer, either. She may be supplying weapons to criminals, but her ultimate plan is a vicious world peace.  As Jonah and Koko travel to all corners of the world, selling arms to the highest bidder, danger and drama follow them wherever they go.  

JORMUNGAND is a free screening, and tickets are first come, first serve. However, if you would like to reserve a seat in advance, you can do so by purchasing a $5.00 food and drink voucher.  You'll certainly need some food and drink to keep up with Jonah and Koko, so it's a reservation worth considering!

We're excited to have the anime fans back in house to warm up our January. See you there ... and feel free to wear your best costumes!
