Cineplex Lists Canadian Screenings for A Silent Voice Anime Film in November
Canadian theater chain Cineplex is listing that it will screen the A Silent Voice anime film in Canada in November. The locations and showtimes are available on the Cineplex website. All screenings will be in Japanese audio with English subtitles and will begin on November 10, although exact screening dates vary by theater.
Naoko Yamada and Kyoto Animation‘s anime film is based on Yoshitoki ?ima‘s manga of the same name. Eleven Arts will screen the film in the United States starting on October 20. Anime Limited screened the film in the United Kingdom and Ireland in March, and will release the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on October 30 with an English dub. Viz Media Europe acquired the rights to distribute the film in the European Union, Russia, Turkey, and French-speaking African countries.
Before the film’s October 20 screening in the United States, the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles will screen the film for free on Monday at 7:00 p.m. The film screening is commemorating October as National Bullying Prevention Month. The Museum of Tolerance is hosting the screening in collaboration with Champions Against Bullying and NCOD: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of California State University – Northridge.
Crunchyroll describes the original manga’s story:
I wish we had never met. I wish we could meet once again.
A boy who can hear, Shoya Ishida, and a transfer student who can’t, Shoko Nishimiya. One fateful day, the two meet, and Shoya leads the class in bullying Shoko. But before long, the class shifts its target from Shoko to Shoya. Years later, Shoya feels strongly that he must see Shoko once again.
The film earned 2.3 billion yen in Japan, and was the 19th highest-grossing film released in Japan in 2016.
