Anime After Dark: Secret Screening

Wed, Jun 26

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Run Time: 100 min. Format: DCP

For our Anime After Dark Pride screening, we’ll be showing a revolutionary masterpiece that shuns rigid ideas of gender, and takes aim at the systems of oppression that grind our youth into denying themselves open and honest lives. We’re not telling you what it is, but you already know, don’t you? 

  • The film’s director left a cush gig at another popular magical girl show to create one of their own, promising something “more naughty.”

  • The production hired mecha specialists to animate the film’s extremely dope climax.

  • The film never received a proper North American theatrical run, premiering at Anime Expo and the San Francisco International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

  • “Does for the magical-girl anime what Neon Genesis Evangelion did for the mecha anime: lay waste to the rules that came before to craft a bold new language all its own.” – Vulture

  • We’ve played this one before, but it’s since fallen out of release – another victim of corporate consolidation.
