Remastered “Millennium Actress” Getting A Special Screening

Satoshi Kon’s classic film “Millennium Actress” has been remastered, and your chance is coming soon to see it larger than life! Where and when will this anime landmark be playing in the US?

On August 13 and 19, Fathom Events and ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio will screen the new remastered version of “Millennium Actress.” Dubbies and subbies need not fight among one another — both versions will be screened separately. The dub stars Abby Trott as Chiyoko Fujiwara (Young) Erin Yvette as Chiyoko Fujiwara (Adult), Cindy Robinson as Chiyoko Fujiwara (Elder), Christian Swindler as Genya Tachibana (Old), Ben Diskin as Kyoji Ida, and Laura Post as Eiko Shimao.

When the legendary Ginei Studios shuts down, filmmaker Genya Tachibana and his assistant are tasked with interviewing its reclusive star, Chiyoko Fujiwara, who had retired from the spotlight 30 years prior. As she recounts her career, Genya and his crew are literally pulled into her memories where they witness her chance encounter with a mysterious man on the run from the police. Despite never knowing his name or his face, Chiyoko relentlessly pursues that man in a seamless blend of reality and memory that only Satoshi Kon could deliver.

With over 700 participating cinemas in the playlist, you should have no trouble finding a theater near you. The sub version will play at 7 PM August 13, and the dub will play at 7 PM August 19. Don’t miss this special event!
