Every year, Nitehawk Cinema offers the chance to catch rarely-screened anime classics lit up large on the big screen. From slick, psychedelic mind-benders to twisted stomach-churners, ANIME AFTER DARK explores anime oddities that push the limits of good sense and good taste.
ANIME AFTER DARK marks two big milestones with the first pair of anime screenings at our new digs at Nitehawk Prospect Park: celebrate 40 years of Mobile Suit Gundam with GUNDAM F91 (1991), a richly animated, and sometimes shocking, space opera that follows a group of kids caught up in a violent coup led by an evil masked aristocrat; and, it’s 2019 and Neo-Tokyo is about to E-X-P-L-O-D-E! The future is now with Katsuhiro Otomo’s essential AKIRA (1988).
ANIME AFTER DARK also returns to Nitehawk Williamsburg for midnite screenings of REBUILD OF EVANGELION, WICKED CITY, MEMORIES and PROMARE. Check the Williamsburg schedule.
