Anouncing the Sega Game Works: Indy Anime Underground Film Series!

From: Gabriel C.
Sent on: Friday, April 17, 2009 11:40 PM
It is my sincere pleasure to bring some very momentous news to the anime fans of Indianapolis. In founding this group one of our stated goals has been to promote the brick and mortar entities in Indianapolis that make the consumption of anime/manga possible in Indianapolis beyond the big box stores to the heart of Japanese and Indianapolis culture. Our first meetup was in one such store Gnosis. The eventual idea was to create a climate in which Anime screenings were no longer a foreign entity in Indianapolis. Today I am announcing nothing less than the fact seven months into our mission it has been fulfilled. Anime screenings in Indy are now a reality

The Indy Anime Underground is partnering with Sega's Game Works in the heart of Indy in the Circle Center Mall to provide bi-monthly anime screenings for Indianapolis spearheaded and coordinated by the Underground. We will be viewing anime in its natural habitat, a fully fledged theatrical screen with surround sound and room for as many as 100 Otaku. The theatre is in the heart of the arcade and its entrance is a Sci Fi themed wall that resembles the scoured hull of a space ship or bunker. You may as well be entering Jaburo base or climbing onboard the Beebop. I can't imagine a more perfect setting for viewing anime in Indy or a more organic partner to undertake such a venture with.

I am also announcing the date and time of our first screening. May 15th from Seven pm to 11:00pm. Sandwiched appropriately between Indiana's most prominent Asian festivals here in Indianapolis(5/9) and Fort Wayne(5/31), both of which the underground will be attending. May is Asian Pacific Heritage month and there couldn't be a more Auspicious time for us to be kicking back and enjoying Japanese culture at its most kawai on a larger than life screen.

I will start the chorus of SUGOI! for the rest of the underground as we join in celebrating the start of a beautiful friendship. Three Cheers for The Sega Game Works!


This underscores the need for additional funds to spread the word about the Underground to the rest of Indy and Central Indiana. We have just initiated a dues system for the group. While not compulsory I certainly hope that you will all agree that twelve dollars a year as a minimum is certainly worth the opportunity to see two free anime films or series a month on the big screen. The funds will go to maintaining our web presence with meetup which so far has come directly from my pocket and helping get the word out about the great group we have here and the amazing new anime screenings we are now undertaking as well as helping to defray any costs incurred for our screenings such as acquiring the screening rights for additional anime films.
