When your city is invaded by a host of demons, you’re going to need the skills of a top-notch exorcist to set things straight. Maybe even a couple. Lucky, then, that twin brothers Rin and Yukio of Blue Exorcist: The Movie are especially skilled exorcists, even if Rin is the literal spawn of Satan. Picking up where the popular anime series left off, and acting as a stand-alone episode and continuation of the story, the Denver premiere of Blue Exorcist: The Movie, at the Alamo Drafthouse, offers fans another chance to revel in the demon-slaying, world-saving exploits of the show while serving as an excellent entry point for the Blue Exorcist curious.
“I was able to jump in, realizing there’s a whole world I’m missing, and I certainly didn’t feel lost,” says Keith Garcia, creative director for the Alamo. “It made me want to go and seek out the whole series.”
You won’t have to do any reading, either, since the Alamo, at 7301 South Santa Fe Drive, Unit 850, in Littleton, is showing the English-dubbed version. See it at 7 or 9:30 p.m.; tickets are $10.50. For more information and to buy tickets, visit drafthouse.com/denver.
Thu., Sept. 26, 7 & 9:30 p.m., 2013
