Anime movies come to Springfield in May 

For anyone that lives in western Massachusetts or near to it, there's going to be an anime movie festival on May 8th (Saturday) in Springfield. It'll be held at Faith United Church on Sumner Avenue, going from around 10am to 8pm.

The schedule is:
10:00am - Castle in the Sky
12:30pm - Spirited Away
3:00pm - Metropolis
6:30pm - Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door

Seeing one movie is $5 and all four is $15 (students $3/10). The money is going to support the rennovation of Bing Theater (now Bing Arts Center). I believe these will be projected DVDs, but I'm not sure if they'll be shown subbed or dubbed yet. The festival poster says that costumes are welcomed, so I'm sure some cosplayers will be about... (I was impressed by the level of costumes I saw in Northampton recently, so I have some hope).

For more information or for purchasing festival passes, you can call 731-9730.

This is a smaller event without a lot of promotion going on, so please pass the info. around if you know of anyone that'd be interested!
