New Meetup: Movie Night - My Girlfriend Is A Cyborg

Announcing a new Meetup for San Diego Japanese Language & Culture Group!

What: Movie Night - My Girlfriend Is A Cyborg
When: Saturday, February 28,[masked]:30 PM

Join us! We're bringing Japanese movies (with English subtitles) to our hangout at Broadway Coffee!

** Note - the movie starts at 9:30PM, but I will be there at 8 for anyone who wants to show up early to hang out and chat. The cafe we use for this event is being generous with their equipment, time, and space, so if you can help out by buying a tea/coffee/etc. or leaving a tip, I'm sure the owners would appreciate it. **


For this movie night, we are showing:

My Girlfriend is a Cyborg

It's "a love story between a high-tech cyborg from the future (Ayase Haruka) and her inventor boyfriend Kitamura Jiro (Koide Keisuke)." Blending a mix of sci-fi, romance, action, and comedy, along with what's reviewed as unique storytelling and excellent visual effects, it sounds like a movie that many will find appealing.

One of the most entertaining ways to appreciate Japanese culture is through its cinema. In America, this is usually confined to two or three people huddled around a DVD player or computer. Instead, we'd like to share and enjoy this experience with a room full of Japanese enthusiasts.

Our setup is enviable. Our host at Broadway Coffee has offered us the use of his whole cafe after it closes, as well as his powerful, world-class sound system, which we'll then be hooking up to our projector. In other words, we can actually enjoy these movies as they were meant to be seen - on a big screen, with audio that fills up the whole room. :)

We look forward to seeing you there!
