Hey everyone, not so much a post as a PSA today. My favourite film of last year, Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name is returning to the cinemas for one day only and it’s Wednesday. Like I’m super glad that I was able to catch this last year because Anime Limited actually put out pretty fully featured cinematic releases, but for as much as I love my art cinemas they can be small and quiet.
It’s rereleasing in IMAX, I doubt they’ve done anything to the presentation but come on, you wanna see some anime on the biggest screen possible. It’s got a single showing at the BFI. That’s wild, if I was in London you know sure as hell where I’d be. No disrespect to my hometown cinema though. I’ve dragged some sceptical friends along and fully expect to make an embarrassment of myself.
If y’all need some extra convincing, or if you’ve seen it already and would like to read my thoughts, you can read my review of it here.
If you haven’t booked a ticket yet: what are you doing? What are you doing you goddamned fool? Go to this website and find the nearest cinema to you.
I hope some of you go see it, I really really do, there is so much of that flick in my heart. If you see it and enjoy it, message me. I just wanna know what it’s like to watch it for the first time again.
