Hey everyone,

What's your favorite way to watch Crunchyroll? On your phone? Computer? Gaming console while on the couch? Well now you can add movie theater to that list, as Crunchyroll brings Anime Movie Nights to theaters across the US starting this April!


Crunchyroll is partnering up with Screenvision Media, a national cinema advertising leader, and KAOS Connect, renowned event cinema creators, to bring Anime Movie Nights to theaters nationwide in the United States starting this year! We will be featuring some of the best and most popular anime, both new series and old favorites, at multiple theaters throughout the year.

Each theatrical event will feature select anime episodes or full-length theatrical releases, giving you guys the opportunity to watch anime on the big screen. Anime Movie Night will also include some special behind-the-scenes content about featured titles and the their production. The first event will premiere April 2017, to be followed by at least three additional events, one per quarter, for the remainder of the year.

For additional information, please check out the page at http://www.animemovienight.com/!

Fun idea but I'd have to know what days of the week and what theaters before I get excited about it.

US isn't the whole world...why don't do this in South america (chile) as an example...Crunchyroll you can do this in any part of the world but always in US....I hope some day you can do something like this outside of US.

PD: This iniciative is good for all anime's fans.

If this is content that isn't already on Crunchyroll, then it's a good thing. If it's stuff that's already on CR, or soon will be, then it's not very interesting to me just for sake of the "event" aspect.

Also, even if it's not on Crunchy, and won't be, a " theatrical event" that features "select anime episodes" is pretty much just pure marketing and advertising, and of no interest to me.

Theatrical releases of movies that aren't available on a legal streaming site? I'd pay to attend those events.

Guess I'll add myself to the mailing list and wait and see.

I'm sure if this comes to New York, it will actually mean it only comes to New York City. And I can't say I want to take a train and buy a ticket for that and the screening so I can watch, as the trailer suggests, Bloodivores on a big screen. If it actually happens in a theater near me and/or it's something more compelling showing, then maybe I'd go.

dont think that being in the US evens means you can get to it, i live in Maine; the north easternmost state also known as "nothing goes here" if we're lucky stuff goes past new york and into boston, which is only 2 states down and lovely 5 hour drive >.>

I ran the Anime Night at the Carousel Cinemas(now Southeastern Cinemas) here in Burlington NC in 2014 I think. We had to stop it after the new owners bought it though I was never given a reason why. We showed them free of charge on Monday nights. I did my best to provide fun activities, using my own money/resources.

Those were good times, I some how doubt my theater will be on board... I don't work there any more I quit last year for better things.

I guess Funimation's screenings have been a big part of what I go to downtown Denver for, but it's only been about once a year (though this year is looking like two). I wonder with increased opportunity will I actually go more often? The idea is a bit weird to me because of the difference against watching it on-demand. I guess there are a few guaranteed hits for me like the Trinity Seven movie. I still hope to watch these in the most comfortable way possible, on Cruncyroll.com sitting at home.
