Sword Art Online - Ordinal Scale

Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale-On Thursday, March 9th, the new SAO movie will be premiering world wide! And what's even more surprising, is that it will be premiering right here in the Anime Society's very own backyard.
At the Regal 9 in downtown Santa Cruz, Ordinal Scale will be premiering from 8:00-10:15 PM. Another exciting feature of this is that the whole movie will be in subtitles, something uncommon for movie theaters.

I would like to invite all of my fellow club members to join me at the screening. I am making plans to be in attendance, so you're welcome to join me, and we can chat before and afterwards. If you're looking for me in the crowd, I'll probably be wearing an SAO shirt or regular clothes. Actually, just keep an ear out for a super loud girl who's screaming about anime and sobbing her eyes out.

While this is a school night, I highly recommend going, as this is only screening March 9th, making it a pretty exclusive thing. Even if you aren't the world's biggest SAO fan, you should take the time to go, as this is directly showing movie theaters around the world that we support anime screenings, as well as subtitles on the silver screen. High attendance rates will REALLY encourage cinemas to do things like this in the future with other series, which is something that we otaku would very much like to see. Make sure you get your homework done though, and have things set up for if you go straight to sleep when you get home. If you do end up maybe missing something though, don't sweat it mate. Just tell your teachers that the Anime Society told you to do it.

Also a fun little teaser, if you don't want to go because you're tired of Kirito saving the day, don't worry. It will be focused more on the main heroines of the series, for exaple Asuna, Lisbeth, Silica, Sinon, Leafa,  and perhaps a few others? Plus Kirito is going to be starting from the ground up, so he doesn't get to cheat and get super powerful without trying. Kirito, the poster child for Mary Sue, not actually being a Mary Sue?! Now that you have to see!

For even more motivation to come, if you're an Anime Society member and present me (Anime Society Founder) with your movie ticket as evidence you attended, you will have your name put into an AS club contest for a chance to win a special promotional poster for the Ordinal Scale movie. See the picture directly to the right? That's exactly what you would get, plus the logo and title. And hey, I might even give away a couple of mini prizes to other people who enter the raffle, because I want to be able to do my part in supporting people to take part in these every day anime-related blessings.

I don't know if they will be selling tickets at the event, so I suggest buying them online and reserving your seats as soon as you can. Make sure you tell all of your friends and family, convince as many people as you can to go. The link to buy event tickets is below, as well as the address for the Santa Cruz movie theater screening it. If you're one of our followers/readers outside of the area, just type in your zip code on the link provided, and it will show a list of theaters near you showing. I was actually surprised that Ordinal Scale was airing near me, I hadn't check until this morning as I had assumed it would only play in big cities. So if you want to go, check it out, you may be pleasantly surprised.
