AniMontreal Projection Night 16+


Montreal’s very own anime-viewing-club “AniMontreal”, invites you and your friends to their monthly screening night at the Lounge ! Here’s a message from our friends at AniMontreal explaining the event:

From Ghibli to “Koe no Katachi”, anime movies capture our imaginations, tug at our heartstrings, and amaze us with animation. So why not come explore this underrated medium with friends at a new monthly event! The Monthly Movie is a collaborative event between AniMontreal, a local anime meetup group, and the O-Taku Lounge, a Montreal-based manga shop and cafe.

Each month on a Saturday, you can join a host of other anime lovers as we explore a wide variety of movies from all genres, time periods, and studios! At the event, you’ll watch a handful of trailers, vote on your favourite, and then we’ll all pick one to watch for that day.

RSVPs for the event are not mandatory, however if there is a lack of space, preference goes to those who have made a reservation. So make sure you head over to AniMontreal’s event page to secure your spot

Cinema night: Your Name – Kimi no na Wa

Amongst the ranks of the highest grossing movies of all time, Your Name can be qualified as a true cultural bomb and invaded cinema screens all over the world at its initial release in 2016.

Directed by Makoto Shinkai (5 Centimeters per Second, Garden of Words) the movie tells the bizarre story of a young adolescent girl living in rural japan and an adolescent boy living in the heart of urban Tokyo, exchanging bodies when they wake up every morning…

The pair communicate with one another by leaving messages on paper, cellphones and simply writing notes down on their hands and arms.

The impact of the exchange on each other’s personal lives is not only palpable but also at times downright chaotic…

Celebrated for its slick animation, brightly painted backgrounds and, above all, its high-emotion narrative, Your Name is a mandatory must-watch for all animation enthusiasts as much as the greatest works of Ghibli Studio.

Movie presented in Japanese with French sub
Entrance 5$

Tickets on sale here:

Robots are the newly acquired slaves of humankind and occupy most of the workforce as the poor have been forced to live in the undergrounds and left with little means of subsistence.
