    I just visited sony's official site for the movie, and it looks like they've substantially changed their initial cities list. Unfortunately, it looks like Columbus is gone, and Columbus is a hell of a lot closer to Cincinnati than Chicago is. Damn.

    Old List (* indicates an eliminated city)

    Austin
    *Boston
    *Boulder/Denver
    *Chapel Hill
    Chicago
    *Columbus
    *Dallas
    *Detroit/Ann Arbor
    *Gainsville
    *Houston
    Los Angeles
    *Madison
    Minneapolis
    New York
    Portland
    *Providence
    San Diego
    San Francisco
    Seattle
    St. Louis
    Washington DC


    New List (* indicates a new city)

    Austin, TX
    *Berkeley, CA
    *Cambridge, MA
    Chicago, IL
    *Irvine, CA
    Los Angeles, CA
    Minneapolis, MN
    New York, NY
    Portland, OR 4/18
    *Royal Oak, MI
    San Diego, CA
    San Francisco, CA
    *San Jose, CA
    Seattle, WA
    St. Louis, MO
    Washington, DC

    Anyway, does anyone know if this list is just for the opening weekend or if these are the only cities that will show the movie? I'm a little worried now that I'm not going to see this until it hits DVD.

    You missed one city on the revised list. Dallas is still getting it on 4 April.

    You people that are disappointed REALLY need to see the series first. There's a whole hell of a lot of character development that you are missing...

    I would suggest watching the series THAN watching the film again. I thought it was an A++ picture myself (but this was a few years after I saw the series and watched it again about 3 times [​IMG])

    I've immersed myself in the world of Bebop now, having rented all 6 discs of Sessions (and watched them all in order). It's one of my favorite animes of all time at this point. Now, I'm ready to see the film! [​IMG]

    Adam, Sony Classics frequently adds second tier cities like Columbus and Indianapolis after initial roll out. If Cowboy Bebop comes to Indy, it'll probably be at Key Cinemas. If it makes it to Columbus, it will likely be at the Drexel theater. I suppose there's also a very (very) small chance it could land at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington.

    Has the Esquire in Cincinnati given up on anime?

    I would have gone to see this in the theater if I could see it somewhere besides Detroit. About 1.5 - 2 hours away, especially with all the sleet and snow we have been getting? No thanks, worth the money, but not worth the hands-gripping-the-steering-wheel, low speed drive through Michigan ice and snow. Any DVD release date yet?

    The animation is really stand out I think. The film itself I found great as well. The only problem I see in the end is how many times can Spike can the living crap kicked, ripped, and shot out of him? Really though, the only other complaint I had was that it was mostly just Spike and not the whole gang involved. I'm still amazed at how the film feels like a film and not an animation. The camera work was well done here.
