Four months. Four Friday nights. Four ace animated flicks. That's what Outta the Box Anime Classics is all about — and, if you feel like a visit to Neo-Tokyo, a trip back in time, watching mercenary swordsmen or seeing a thief trying to free a princess, it's all about a great night out at the cinema as well.
Starting on August 4, and screening on September 15, October 6 and November 3 as well, the mini-festival is bringing out the big guns when it comes to films. It all kicks off with Akira, with The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Ninja Scroll and The Castle of Cagliostro on the bill.
Sure, you might've seen some or all of these before; however there's nothing like watching a classic on the big screen. And if nothing else, getting in a cinema viewing of Akira before the long-mooted live-action remake finally materialises might be a wise move, depending on your thoughts on this year's Ghost in the Shell adaptation.
