This one’s for the kids and the anime nerds: The latest film installment of long-running Japanese animation franchise Yu-Gi-Oh! will receive a limited theatrical run at the Rave University City 6 and Rave Ritz Center 16 on February 26 + 27 and March 5 + 6. Showtimes are TBA.
Years ago I went to the Loews in Cherry Hill to see the midnight opening of Alien vs. Predator, which was sold out by the time my girlfriend and I arrived. Our only other option was to see the first Yu-Gi-Oh! film, which was way over (or beneath?) my twenty-something-year-old head. It was like watching a fast-paced board game from the future sans instruction booklet though I would learn later that weekend that it was no worse than AVP.
