Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s popular manga series, the first of this two-part live-action horror-fantasy finds teen friends Eren (Haruma Miura), Armin (Kanata Hongo) and Mikasa (Kiko Mizuhara) wondering about the world beyond a protective wall, built after a devastating attack a century earlier.

Their sense of security is shattered when huge, man-eating Titans break through the defensive structure, once again threatening humanity with extinction.

ATTACK ON TITAN: END OF THE WORLD (Part 2)

2015, FUNimation Entertainment, 100 min, Japan, Dir: Shinji Higuchi

Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

Showtimes for Part 2:

Thursday, October 22 – 7:30 PM

Sunday, October 25 – 7:30 PM

The apocalyptic horror-fantasy reaches its thrilling conclusion a few years after the Titans first breached the outer defensive wall; the creatures’ ferocious attacks have steeled the resolve of Eren, Mikasa and Armin to defeat them, and though the odds are against mankind, the Titans have a weak spot.

Like the first installment of ATTACK ON TITAN, this fast-moving film is darker (and gorier) than its source material, and visually impressive despite a budget far below that of Hollywood blockbusters.

Ticket prices for each screening: $11 General, $7 Cinematheque Members. A $9 Student/Senior Price is also available at the Box Office only.  www.americancinematheque.com
