‘Digimon Adventure tri.’ makes one-night-only U.S. debut in NEPA theaters on Sept. 15
From a press release:
“Digimon Adventure tri. – Chapter 1: Reunion” has already delighted audiences across its native country of Japan. Now, this new chapter in the wildly popular anime series is set to make its U.S. premiere on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. when Fathom Events, Eleven Arts, and Toei Animation bring “Digimon Adventure tri. – Chapter 1: Reunion” to movie theaters nationwide for a special one-night event.
This exclusive event, the first Digimon English-dubbed feature to be released in the U.S. since 2000, will also feature an extended sneak peek of the English-subbed “Chapter 3” as well as additional bonus content.
Tickets for “Digimon Adventure tri. – Chapter 1: Reunion” can be purchased online now by visiting fathomevents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 400 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network, including Cinemark 20 (40 Glenmaura National Blvd., Moosic), Regal Dickson City Stadium 14 & IMAX (3909 Commerce Blvd., Dickson City), and Cinemark Stroud Mall (160 Stroud Mall, Stroudsburg).
It has been six years since that summer adventure when Tai (now in high school) and the rest of the “DigiDestined” crossed over to the Digital World, and nearly three years since the frenzied final battles between warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time continues to pass until the adventure “digi-volves” once again.
“We are pleased to partner for the first time with Toei Animation and again with Eleven Arts to debut the newest chapter in this highly beloved series to U.S. audiences,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “Fathom Events is proud to provide anime fans the very best in entertainment from Japan right at their local movie theater.”
