To kick off Your Name 君の名は finally coming to here to the west, we’ve decided to have a Makoto Shinkai day this Friday, April 7th! Starting at 2pm in the Language Oasis (1st floor Curtin Hall), we’re going to be watching some of Shinkai’s short and featured films, including The Garden of Words and 5 Centimeters Per Second. Feel free to bring snacks!
Afterwords, you can head over to the planetarium in the physics building at 6pm for the Japanese Program’s Spring Festival celebration!
Then after that you can get ready for the 10:30pm showing of Your Name at the Marcus Ridge Cinema! Tickets are around $10.50. If you can’t make it that night, don’t worry. Your Name will be showing from the 7th through the 13th. Almost every day there will be 5 showings, though it is important to note that only the 10:30pm showings are subbed (though feel free to double check me on that).
Hope to see you there!
