Hi again everyone!
There's time to squeeze one more movie into the long weekend!Astroboy
is the classic Japanese tale about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. The 60's anime has been imported by the US, recreated and now re-exported back to Japan :) We'll be watching the original English version featuring voices such as Nicholas Cage, Charlize Theron, Samuel L Jackson and Bill Nighy. 'Shinjuku Piccadilly Cinemas'
will be our venue for the screening.Date:

Here's a links to maps of the cinema in English
of the area along with some access directions.
Tickets will be 1300 yen (1400 yen all up with meetup fee) and I will pre-purchase them (with reserved seating) around 6pm, Sunday the 11th of October
). Do keep in mind that tickets can sell VERY quickly and I cannot guarantee tickets for late RSVPs. Tickets will be 1800yen on the day for adults, provided they aren't sold out. Please keep in mind that pre-purchased tickets are NOT refundable once they are purchased and if you do not show, you will still be liable to pay for them. If you haven't attended one of our meetups before, please CALL me with your Keitai/Cell phone number and introduce yourself prior to my purchasing tickets for you.***Important Note***
I will be in the meeting area until the scheduled screening time of the film and my phone will go off after this. Should you expect to be late, CALL ME WELL BEFORE the screening time and we can speak about what is to be done. If you have NOT called me by this stage, there is nothing I will be able to do to get your ticket to you. Please note that you will still be liable to pay for the ticket if I have bought it for you.
Also, in the event that not all seating is optimal, please note the following: Should you arrive late (after the scheduled meeting time), I may reallocate your seat to someone else who has arrived on time. Therefore, please show up by the scheduled meeting time to get your original pre-allocated seats. (I will post this time up once movie times are released).
The finishing time for the movie should be about 8.40pm and given enough time, we'll pop into a spot nearby for a drink/meal.
Once again, if you are unsure whether or not you'll be able to attend, please RSVP 'No' with a comment stating this.Movie Synopsis:
