Akira

A film by Katsuhiro Ohtomo

The legendary Anime up on the big screen! On July 16, 1988, Tokyo was destroyed by a new type of bomb, triggering World War III. Thirty-one years later, Neo-Tokyo has arisen from ashes under Japan’s new political system; but the glittering city hides poverty, ignorance and despair. A secret military project endangers this troubled city when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath! Only two kids and a group of psionics can stop the mutating biker. 35mm print courtesy of the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
