For one day only, you can catch the Re:Cycle Penguindrum movies back to back, exclusively at Odeon cinemas. The films were crowdfunded in Japan for the 10th anniversary of the Penguindrum series, bringing Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena) back to teh director's chair for a retelling of his Mawaru Penguindrum series.
Blending Ikuhara's complex character studies with an arthouse feel, these are films that deserve to be seen on the big screen. Shown in Japanese with English subtitles, the films are separated by a 10 minute intermission.
Watch the trailer:
