'Poppy Hill' pops up at Pearlridge

Now at Kahala AND Pearlridge!So. Remember my last post, where I speculated that From Up on Poppy Hill was winding down its run at the Kahala 8 theaters? Thanks to the sharp eyes of tag-team partner in fandom Wilma J., who was scanning through her Facebook news feed today, we've since learned that the film's actually expanded its local reach, adding a second screen in the Pearlridge West 16 theater complex. This may come in handy for some of you for whom the drive to Kahala may be a bit too much of a grind (*waves at frequent commenter Animatsuri*).

Via Fandango, here are your Pearlridge showtimes from Sunday through Thursday:

Sunday: 10:50 a.m. and 1, 3:10 and 5:20 p.m.
Monday through Thursday: Noon, 2:10 and 4:20 p.m.

And here's your online ticket link.

One other note that may make people's ears perk up a bit: Wilma's friend noted that the film was in Japanese, presumably with English subtitles. Take this as an unconfirmed rumor for now; we're not sure if all of these screenings offer what's arguably been the top wish of everyone I've talked to who's already seen it ("Yeah, it was good, buuuuut … I really wish I could've heard the original soundtrack …"). Wilma may be going on Sunday to check it out for herself, so if there are any updates, we'll be sure to let you know.

Update, 9:55 p.m.: Japanese subbed version confirmed! Thanks, Jeff!

    Good news! I called the Pearlridge Theater and the manager confirmed they have an English subtitled, Japanese language version of the film.

    Cool! I can catch the movie on the way to work now.

    I'm almost always the only one in the room that will probably want see a dubbed version before the Japanese one. I just want to watch a show and not worry about missing a something while reading the bottom of the screen. However, coming from a time in the distant past when it was grainy un-translated VHS tapes from the local Japanese video store or traded from a loose network of clubs, I'll take it any way I can. ;)

    Good things come to them that wait. When to see the movie on Tues. which happens to sell tickets for $6 that day.
