Akira with English subtitles

We have the great pleasure of screening Akira, the 1988 Japanese adult animated cyberpunk action film and the number one Manga classic with its original Japanese dialogue and English subtitles!



Set in a dystopian 2019, it tells the story of Shōtarō Kaneda, a leader of a biker gang whose childhood friend, Tetsuo Shima, acquires incredible telekinetic abilities after a motorcycle accident, eventually threatening an entire military complex amid chaos and rebellion in the sprawling futuristic metropolis of Neo-Tokyo.

Akira is widely regarded by audiences and critics as one of the greatest films ever made, especially in the animation, action and science fiction genres, as well as a landmark in Japanese animation.
