Leading North American anime publisher Central Park Media announced today that the theatrical premiere of its highly anticipated computer-generated monster movie Negadon: The Monster From Mars will take place May 9, 2006 at The ImaginAsian Theater in New York City (239 East 59th Street). A special triple feature of Negadon, along with Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek and Cat Soup, two additional award-winning Central Park Media films, has been booked for a limited theatrical run at The ImaginAsian Theater from May 12 to 18. Show times will be posted at www.theimaginasian.com in the near future.
The Negadon NYC premiere will begin with a reception at The ImaginAsian Theater at 7 p.m. on May 9 and be followed by a formal welcome and screening at 8 p.m. As seating will be limited, CPM asks that any members of the press wishing to attend the theatrical premiere RSVP by no later than April 30. For members of the press unable to attend the May 9 engagement, CPM will be holding a special press preview at 11 a.m. on April 24 at The ImaginAsian Theater. DVD screening copies of the film will be available for members of the press who are unable to attend either of the screenings.
