Ghost in the Shell 2.0 @ Prince Charles

Prince Charles Cinema is showing this classic Japanese animated film in its 2008 re-released version. One of my favourite films, it combines an intricate action plot with amazing images and a surprising philosophical message.

"A stunning feat of modern animation, Ghost in the Shell offers a thoughtful, complex treat for anime fans, as well as a perfect introduction for viewers new to the genre." (Rotten Tomatoes)

Set in the year 2029 where the world is an interconnected electronic network, female cyborg officer Major Kusanagi is out to catch The Puppet Master, a hacker, who can even hack human minds to rob them of their memories. As the story develops, Kusanagi starts to wonder if there is more to her than the sum of her machine parts.

The film starts at 1:30 pm. Consider booking your ticket in advance (click here). We will meet from 1pm outside the Prince Charles Cinema (look for the Meetup sign) and go for a drink after the film.

      I don't think it will sell out, so you should be able to buy your ticket on the spot.

    Is this dubbed or subbed?

    April 13, 2013

    • Florian

      should be dubbed. Wikipedia says "The original English dub was used for the new 2.0 version with the new sound effects"
