Evangelion: Thrice Upon a Time IMAX Screenings
GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced it has added exclusive IMAX shows of Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time to theaters nationwide on November 30th only.
This event screening will be followed by multiple-date non-IMAX viewings of the highly anticipated fourth and final installment of the new theatrical “Rebuild” editions of the Evangelion franchise, on December 6th, 8th and 11th. Tickets for all showings will be available on November 2nd at GKIDS.com/EVANGELION and at the participating theater box offices. The film has already been released in its country on March 8, 2022, and swiftly became one of the year’s top box office films of Japanese. Created by Hideaki Anno, the Neon Genisis Evangelion franchise is considered one of the most influential animated sagas of all time.
Since the 1995 premiere of the original television series, the story of teenager Shinji Ikari has remained one of the most iconic titles in all of animation history, and a global pop culture phenomenon. Following the conclusion of the beloved 1995 television show, the legendary project received new life as the Evangelion movie series, which began with Evangelion:1.11 You are (Not) Alone in 2007, followed by Evangelion:2.22 You Can (Not) Advance in 2009, then Evangelion:3.33 You Can (Not) Redo in 2012, and now culminating in the finale Evangelion:3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time.
Last year, GKIDS released the original twenty-six episode television series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, as well as the films Evangelion: Death (True)2 and The End of Evangelion on Blu-ray and digital download-to-own for the first time in North America. GKIDS also handles North American distribution for creator Hideaki Anno’s prior series, NADIA: The Secret of Blue Water.
