    I just thought that those of you who have not seen it, whose city did not receive it in the inital limited release, or who want to see it again would be interested in this. Disney has announced that Spirited Away will be getting a wide theatrical release this coming Friday. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=3373 [​IMG]

    Woo hoo! It's coming back to my local Cinemark. Even though the DVD's coming out in a few weeks, I may have to treat myself to a repeat performance. [​IMG]

    You can get the DVD now if you want the R3 version with the original language (6.1 DTS) and English subtitles.

    No way they'd be doing this if it didn't win the Academy Award. They're just taking advantage of its win to make some money.

    Kinda makes me mad [​IMG] .. It's good though that people will get a chance to see it on the big screen.

    Is there a webpage listing the cities the re-release will take place in starting this Friday?

    Nausicaa.net has a link to the theaters that they will be updating as soon as info is forwarded to them; it's probably the best place to start.

    I’ll take the big screen, as I missed this the first time around. The DVD will show up in the fullness of time.

    I hope this leads people to pay more attention to anime in terms of awards and recognition, but not ALL anime so that the crap stuff starts taking over.

    It's opening in my area this weekend. I guess I'll get another chance to see it - this time, the dub version.

    Yay, it's playing in a handful of theaters in the Atlanta area, so I'll be seeing it on Saturday.

    I judge opening wide by my multiplex down the street. Hell About Schmidt and Adaptation never did make it there. This is making it there. If that's the case it has to be all over the place.

    Or on the flip side, it'll make no money and Disney won't even bother to pick up similar films in the future. I guess it's worth the risk, but I really doubt this will make much money. Most families haven't even heard of it, and won't be going to the cinemas to see it. I think really young kids might be scared of some of the images in it as well.

    Going tomorrow night. I was suprised when the Historic West didn't show this, as they are the theater that would usually be the only theater to carry a film like Spirited Away. Now, wouldn't you know it that Hollywood Cinemas is including it for this weekend. I'm not complaining.
