The Ancient Magus’ Bride & STAR TREK VI - Outdoor Concert & Movie Night

We have two special movie nights this week. First up,

The Ancient Magus' Bride Anime Movie Night
July 26, Select Theaters

Oddly, the actually web-site doesn't explain that you're probably getting three episodes of the new series from the same animators of Attack on Titan. It hasn't come out on the air waves of Japan yet, but it looks gorgeous. Based on manga of the same name we get the story of Hatori Chise , who has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love.  Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers obtains her through a slave auction, Chise's life will never be the same.

Running before The Ancient Magus' Bride is an exclusive first look at Children of Ether, an original Crunchyroll production.

Next up,  

Thursday at 7 PM - 9:30 PM
Japanese American National Museum
100 N Central Ave, Los Angeles, California 90012
The Japanese Museum is really hedging all their bets on George Takei lately.
"Join us for a set by Tim Russ (Tuvok, on Voyager) Crew, a pop-rock band, followed by a screening of "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" (1991), the last of the Star Trek films to feature the entire original cast from the television series, including George Takei as Hikaru Sulu, now commander of the USS Excelsior. Welcome remarks by George Takei (subject to availability).

Presented in conjunction with "New Frontiers: The Many World of George Takei," on view at the Japanese American National Museum through August 20, 2017. Free admission to the museum on Thursdays from 5-8pm (last admissions at 7:30pm), so arrive early to check out "New Frontiers" before the event. For information about the exhibition:
