English-Language Version of This Internationally-Acclaimed Anime Title
to the Big Screen September 15 Only
DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Digimon–“DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.- CHAPTER 1: REUNION,” has already delighted
audiences across its native country of Japan. Now, this new chapter in
this wildly popular anime series is set to make its U.S. premiere on
Thursday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m. local time when Fathom Events,
ELEVEN ARTS and Toei Animation bring “DIGIMON
ADVENTURE tri.- CHAPTER 1: REUNION” to movie theaters nationwide
for a special one-night event. This exclusive event, the first Digimon
English-dubbed feature to be released in the U.S. since 2000, will also
feature an extended sneak peek of the English-subbed Chapter 3 as well
as additional bonus content.
Tickets for “DIGIMON ADVENTURE tri.- CHAPTER 1: REUNION” can be
purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in nearly 400 select movie theaters through
Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit

It’s been six years since that summer adventure when Tai (now in high
school) and the rest of the “DigiDestined” crossed over to the Digital
World, and nearly three years since the frenzied final battles between
warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time
continues to pass, until the adventure “digi-volves” once again.
“We are pleased to partner for the first time with Toei Animation and
again with ELEVEN ARTS to debut the newest chapter in this highly
beloved series to U.S. audiences,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.
“Fathom Events is proud to provide anime fans the very best in
entertainment from Japan right at their local movie theater.”
