Often spend long nights watching random anime and wishing they would show it more in cinemas? Well the twice-yearly anime all-nighter, part of the Sci-Fi London Film Festival, has announced TWO anime all-nighters for next month, both held at the Apollo Cinema in Piccadilly Circus!

The fantastic anime all-nighters have been a staple of the festival for some years now and, with free drinks, ice-cream and a bag goodies included in price of seeing a great range of anime on the big screen for just £30, they have been unsurprisingly successful. Read on for the full line up.

On Saturday 16th October the all-nighters will both kick-off at midnight and consist of the following films.

Anime All-Nighter

  • Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind
  • The Cat Returns
  • Eden Of The East (all eleven episodes)

Studio Ghibli All-Nighter

  • Spirited Away
  • Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind
  • The Cat Returns
  • Howl's Moving Castle

I would urge readers to take up the chance to see the fantastic Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind on the big screen. It is rarely shown in UK cinemas and the scope of the film suits the cinema much more then the small screen. The other films on offer are also impressive and should make for a great night.

Although there are no cosplay events nor many cosplayers at the All-Nighter, the lobby is a great place to chill out and meet fellow fans. Chatting to neighbours during the breaks between films is also common, so it is a more friendly event then one might expect.
