reminder: cinema under the stars



A reminder for all my Bay Area friends about the Center for Asian American Media's free outdoor screening of Mamoru Hosoda's The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Tomorrow night, Friday, September 19 at Peace Plaza in San Francisco Japantown. Here are some details about the event:

CAAM and the Japantown Merchants Association present CINEMA UNDER THE STARS

The Center for Asian American Media co-presents a free outdoor screening of THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME. When 17-year-old Makoto gains the ability to leap backwards through time, she sets about preventing personal mishaps. Yet she soon realizes that changing the past isn’t so simple! Can she use her new powers to shape the future of herself and her friends? From production company Madhouse, THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME is an absorbing, beautifully crafted anime. Featuring a talented crew who worked on such classics as Princess Mononoke and The Grave of the Fireflies, this film is destined for modern classic status.

Preceded by:

Early arrival highly suggested. Seating is first-come, first-served.

Hey CAAM Members!*
Email us at membership@asianamericanmedia.org and let us know you’re coming! We’ll save your seats and have your Scharffen Berger hot chocolate ready for you!
It should be a really fun evening for the whole family. I suggest getting there fairly early to get a seat, and don't forget to bring a blanket—it could get kind of chilly. Watch the trailer for the movie here. And for more information about CAAM and the screening, go here.
