When you think of Animation produced in Japan, one name holds the crown. Akira brought Anime to mainstream U.S. Consciousness in the late 80s/early 90s and the genre has grown in popularity ever since. Akira's blend of Beautiful Artwork, striking visual style, and groundbreaking storytelling are just as revolutionary today as ever, and the themes of youthful boredom, corporate medical corruption and experimentation, and children with super powers growing tentacles still ring as true. The Crest Theatre is very excited to present this awesome animated feature to Sacramento once again.
Event has ended.
