But that’s not all, we now have extra dates and showings at selected cinemas – which include back to back showings of both the dubbed and subtitled version of the film, helping to ensure you get to experience Akira the way you want.
Check below for updates.

Manga Entertainment is excited to announce that they will be screening the cult anime classic Akira across the UK to celebrate their twenty-fifth birthday this year!

The showings will take place on the 21st September, and will play on over 70 screens – making this the widest UK theatrical release of the film since its original run!

“Iconic and game-changing, Akira is the definitive anime classic which even after decades since its initial release still holds up as one of the most thrilling and visceral films you will ever see! In celebration of Manga’s 25th anniversary we will be re-releasing Akira in cinemas this September on over 70 screens across the UK. Not only that, in November we will be releasing a collector’s edition triple play – DVD, Blu-ray and digital copy housed in a rigid box, containing both English dubs as well as brand new artwork. This is an absolute must for any Akira fan!”

After Tetsuo is captured by the military and experimented on, he gains psychic abilities and learns about the existence of the project’s most powerful subject, Akira. Both dangerous and destructive, Kaneda must take it upon himself to stop both Tetsuo and Akira before things get out of control and the city is destroyed once again.
