Hi, I´m new around here (although I have read the forum countless times without being registered).

I plan on visiting Japan (probably Tokyo) this summer and I'm thinking about going there during the premiere of EVA 3.0+1.0 and watch the movie on the big screen. Obviously it doesn't make sense to see a movie in Japanese if I don't have a clue about the language, but I hope there is a cinema that plays the movie with English subtitles.

I know is not common to display a movie in foreign language respect to the country that produced it, but as Japan has really big cities I thought that maybe there is a cinema that usually plays newly released anime or Japanese films with English subtitles.

So, does anybody know a cinema in Japan that could play EVA 3.0+1.0 with English subtitles?

Thanks all of you! Cheers!

Pd: Spanish subtitles would be even better, but I know it is asking too much.

I don't know what they will do, but there are two things that would be in your favor. The first is that the english translation will be done by Khara itself, as it is the case with 3.0. As the first ten minutes or so of the movie that was released last summer was translated by them, it would make sense that the rest of the film will be as well. The second is that there are now special glasses that were created so that someone will see subtitles while any Japanese person would watch the film like he or she normally would. However, this is specualtion and there is no solid evidence as of yet they will do this in Japan. If they do, they'll say so in the next few months. So to answer your question, I would say maybe but don't count on it.

The Weathering With You bluray, which comes out in may, will include English subtitles. Sort of unrelated, but I think it indicates what is maybe becoming a trend.

I think it might be possible, but don't be too hopeful about it to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, maybe the film will be playing in theaters in other countries soon after

which would make the internet a spoiler mine, but I'd still be happy for the people wanting to watch it at a cinema.

Let's not forget Khara specifically made an English version for movie poster. They are definitely aware of Eva's popularity overseas and they might want to market towards that.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

Perhaps the revenue EVA generated on Netflix might be a factor

I would be very hyped if it was the case, but I'm not counting on it

I'm still foolishly holding out for a stateside release sometime this summer.

Don't expect a stateside release in the summer. Toho & Toei are going to be focused solely on a domestic release and Hollywood releases are likely already guaranteed to have all the best screens already booked for runs of Ghostbuster reboots and Kevin Hartand Ryan Reynolds doing lame live action versions of Wreck-It Ralphs through August.

I do predict there will be some kind of run in the US about three months after the Japanese release in the best case scenario. Possibly early October before the Fall Season starts getting busy with the major.
