Come and enjoy an anime movie with me at The Cinematheque! This will be my first time attending the theatre, and I heard that during the month of June they will be showing a Japanese film (live and anime) every Thursday, if I am not mistaken. Anyways, please read below for some pertinent details of the event.
Start: We will gather at 6pm to purchase tickets and settle in before the movie begins at 6:30pm. I highly advise that you purchase your ticket in advance online. Please do not be late! Upon arrival, if you have not purchased your ticket in advance, you may stand in line and purchase it at the box office. I will wait 10-minutes for any late comers before directing people into the theatre to find our seats.
How to find us: I will be standing beneath the awning, near the stairs of the main entrance to the theatre. Please refer to the picture for reference.
Parking & Transit: Paid parking can be found along the adjacent streets and at the Holiday Inn across the street. Transit does run along the area as well.
Cost: Everyone is responsible for the purchase of their own ticket. You can refer to ticket pricing here: http://www.thecinematheque.ca/tickets
I do not collect the payment. You will need to pay the theatre yourself via in person or online.
Mandatory Membership Cost: Unfortunately, everyone is required to spend an additional $3 to purchase a government mandatory theatre membership fee upon arrival. This cannot be purchased online but at the box office. It's a pain in the butt, you know, but, hey, it's good for a whole year!
Why did you write the cost for this event to be $15: Really, the ticket cost to see this movie is $12, not $11. If you take the $12 with the additional $3 cost for the stupid mandatory membership, you will get $15. Either way you choose to pay, you must pay the theatre, not me.
Movie Synopsis: In the near-future Japan, humans coexist with sophisticated androids, who are indiscernible from humans except for the glowing data halo readouts hovering over their heads. In this beautifully animated science fiction tale we enter the back alleys of Tokyo, where a secret cafe exists. It is a place where androids can turn their halos off and where the the lives of humans and their robotic counterparts take surprising new directions. Time of Eve, written and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, originally streamed in six segments on Yahoo! Japan between 2008 and 2009.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
Duration: Approximately 106 minutes
Hope to see you there!
