As part of the Full Throttle at the Rafael: Cinama on Two Wheels series in San Rafael, CA, Akira will be shown on Sunday, 6/18 at 4:00 PM.

The other films in the series are The Wild One, Devil's Angels, On Any Sunday, The Motorcycle Diaries and, of course, Easy Rider.

I know this is not anime, but it has been mentioned on the boards before:

Also playing at the Rafael, starting on friday, June 9th, Spirit of the Beehive (El Espíritu de la Colmena):

Widely regarded as the greatest Spanish film of the 1970s, and selected by Time Out as one of the last century's 100 greatest films, Víctor Erice's spellbinding 1973 classic returns to the screen in a new 35mm print with improved subtitles. In a small Castilian village in 1940, soon after the Spanish Civil War, six-year-old Ana (Ana Torrent) and older sister Isabel (Isabel Telleria) attend a traveling movie show of Frankenstein. Ana becomes possessed by Boris Karloff's image, wondering why the movie's monster had to die. Produced towards the end of Franco's long dictatorship, Spirit of the Beehive explores adult repression while it creates a haunting portrait of a child's inner life. Sublimely beautiful and meditative, it was Erice's first feature film. (One of the cinema's perfectionists and most elusive artists, he has made only two more features in the past 30 years.) Nicolas Rapold of The New York Sun calls it "The most enchanting and purest poem to childhood in the modern cinema." In Spanish with English subtitles. Writers: Ángel Fernández-Santos, Víctor Erice. Director: Víctor Erice. (Spain 1973) 95 min.

Oh, yeah, if you're lucky enough to have the chance, see that film! I saw it more than 20 years ago, and I still think about it.

By the way, Criterion hinted in their May newsletter that they are planning to release Víctor Erice's Spirit of the Beehive in the not too distant future...

My Dad lives near San Rafael, but instead we're going to see the SF Mime Troupe's new play. I think my dad would prefer Spirit of the Beehive to Akira anyway.
