Evangelion 1.0 to screen on 70+ Screens in North America

So, you may be lucky and have a theater close to you showing it. Well, if you live in Canada or California that is.

Funimation has announced that they are screening Evangelion 1.0 on 70+ screens in North America, starting off with Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 2-5, then moving to Seattle July 3rd (for a week), Houston on July 16th, Phoenix on July 17th (for a week), San Diego Comic Con July 22-26, and then 4 locations in San Diego and Riverside, CA on July 29th.

Then the movie is showing in Boston August 14-17, followed by a screening in 67 Canadian theaters on September 30th.

So we have 67 Canadian locations, 6 California locations, plus Houston, Phoenix, Boston, and Seattle.  Not a very good selection of sites if you live East of the Rocky Mountains in the United States (except for you damn Bostonians).  It’s not even currently scheduled to screen in what seem to be obvious locations such as New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, or Atlanta (to at least make a trip non-suicidal for those in the east.  I mean, who is going to fly out to San Diego or up to Canada to see a movie?)

So alas, the rest of us will have to wait for the DVD release on November 10th.
