Summer Wars - A Pepito's Parkway Theater and ATC's February showing

January 31st 2013, 11:18 CST

Free Anime on the Big Screen returns on February 20th with Mamoru Hosoda's supreme sophomore effort, Summer Wars! Once more, we will have two showings: 5:00pm dubbed and 7:05pm subbed. All showings are at Pepito's Parkway Theater and are free and open to the public. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your dog, just come on down and watch some anime with us! Your support of Pepito's and the Theater's concessions continue to allow us to have these free showings.

When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Kenji Koiso is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki to come with her to her family’s Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki’s family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era, and they’ve all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the matriarch of the family, Sakae. That’s when Kenji discovers his “summer job” is to pretend to be Natsuki’s fiancé and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki’s act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can’t resist solving. As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a hijacking of the social networking site through which most of the world's social and business traffic flows.

January 13th 2013, 22:23 CST

In the 21st century, mankind lives on two worlds. Following the collision of an ice asteroid, massive terraforming has made Venus a planet now capable of supporting life.

Pepito's Parkway Theater and ATC Showing Akira

November 15th 2012, 14:50 CST

 

Pepito's Parkway Theater and Anime Twin Cities are proud to present

 
"AKIRA" 
 
In this seminal anime cyberpunk film, a biker gang becomes embroiled in the machinations of a secret government project in dystopian Neo-Tokyo. One of the teenage bikers manifests his latent psychic powers in the process, and his best friend is determined to save him from the catastrophic consequences that seem certain to befall the post-apocalyptic world. Katsuhiro Otomo spared no production expenses in adapting his epic manga, and the result was soon regarded as a masterpiece in animation. Even as "Akira" approaches its 25th anniversary, its legacy as a landmark anime film is secure.
 
The movie will be shown on Tuesday, November 20th, at 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm. The Parkway Theater is generously having FREE admission for these showings. Please support the theater by patronizing the concession stand or the attached Mexican restaurant, Pepitos; food and drink from the restaurant can be brought into the theater. Your support would in turn lead to future FREE showings of anime movies the way they were meant to be shown, in a full-size cinema.
 
This movie is rated R.
