Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was visually a very impressive film, but ultimately disappointed many fans of the Final Fantasy series of videogames who were probably expecting something more like the benchmark that is Final Fantasy VII. Well, Advent Children, the sequel to that game, is being released domestically on DVD and UMD next month, and there’s a free screening (Square-Enix) this Monday at the Arclight (link via Joystiq):
Square Enix and Sony Pictures announced this week that a special celebration for the official release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children will take place with a screening of the film at the Cinerama Dome, at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California. The one-night-only event will take place on April 3 and will be open to the public, and is the only chance to see the film in theaters before its release on DVD and UMD formats on April 25. The film’s showing is complimentary and tickets will not be for sale. Both production staff and cast members are scheduled to make an appearance following the screening.
Interested RPGamers in the Hollywood area can find the ArcLight Cinemas at 6360 West Sunset Boulevard, in Los Angeles, California. Guaranteed admission to the event will be handed out at Noon on the day of the showing at one ticket per person, and any remaining seats will be distributed at the time of the screening.
