==Saturday MASS: September 14 2019 ==


9/14/2019 @ 7:00pm

September's Saturday MASS features METROPOLIS, a film directed by Rintaro and based off of the comic book by Osamu Tezuka with screenplay by Katuhio Ôtomo.

Playing like a candy-colored hybrid of Fritz Lang's film of the same name and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis borrows its plot liberally from numerous legendary sci-fi sources, all the while dazzling viewers on the same cutting-edge visual level as such anime classics as Akira and Ghost in the Shell.

This film will be screened in the original Japanese with English subtitles.


Our monthly MASS ongoing sponsor is NUTV. Follow them on Instagram & Facebook for a chance to win two tickets to this screening, to be announced on their social media soon!

If the cost of purchasing a ticket is a barrier for you, we have partnered with the Calgary Public Library Sun Life Arts + Culture Pass to provide free tickets to low-income folks. Visit for more information.


From James Cameron director of The Terminator:

"Metropolis is the new milestone in anime. It has beauty, power, mystery, and above all... heart."

From Roger Ebert:

"one of the best animated films I have ever seen."
