Midnight Screening – Akira
At the time of its original release, Akira was the most expensive animated film ever produced in Japan. Based on the best-selling graphic novel by director Katsuhiro Otomo (Steamboy), it’s is a tough, gritty, violent science fiction adventure set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo—a city overrun by motorcycle gangs and a destructive telepathic force. Filled with action, amazing special effects and eye-popping visuals, Akira set the standard for state-of-the-art anime. (Fully subtitled)
