Animation Station

Too often, anime enthusiasts hunker down in solitude, scouring the Internet for the newest Japanese animated release. “Anime fans have so many opportunities to stream it or just wait and get imported DVDs and Blu-rays and stuff like that. But the opportunity they’re missing, in a lot of places, is to watch it on the big screen with their friends and have a good time that way,” says Keith Garcia, creative manager at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, which will be hosting a free screening of Code:Breaker tonight.

Code:Breaker is a wonderful new entry in anime,” Garcia says. “It’s from the director of a great series called Fullmetal Alchemist. It’s about a young assassin employed by a secret government organization who has to figure out right and wrong. It deals with typical themes in anime, which is okay, since every anime has a unique style. Even though Code:Breaker has a typical plot, it’s animated beautifully.”

The movie begins at 9:35 p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 7301 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton. Entry is free, but tickets can be reserved for $5, which will be exchanged for food and drink during the screening. For tickets and more information, call 720-588-4107 or go to
