Theatrical Premiere Engagement!

Friday, August 31 – Tuesday, September 4

(2017) dir Masaaki Yuasa w/Kana Hanazawa, Gen Hoshino, Hiroshi Kamiya [92 min; DCP]
From the visionary mind of director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Adventure Time’s “Food Chain”) comes THE NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL, a comedy about one epic night in Kyoto. As a group of teens go out for a night on the town, a sophomore known only as ‘The Girl with Black Hair’ experiences a series of surreal encounters with the local nightlife… all the while unaware of the romantic longings of Senpai, a fellow student who has been creating increasingly fantastic and contrived reasons to run into her, in an effort to win her heart.

Staff Pick!
Ivy – This is one of my favorite anime directors, beside wonderful Miyazaki. I am so excited for a new film by him!

“A highly original work by an artist who follows his own vision – wherever it leads.” – Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times

“Colorful, madcap, and surprisingly sweet, The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl is the best nocturnal romp you never had, and a dizzying reignition of rom-com formula.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“The term ‘fever dream’ is often used to describe animation like Yuasa’s, but it’s rarely so apt as it is here.” – Christopher Campbell, Film School Rejects
