Pokemon: The First Movie is coming back to theaters October 29th and November 1st

11:00 AM on 10.24.2016 // Hubert Vigilla

Gotta catch em at Cinemark

The popularity of Pokemon Go spawned a forthcoming Detective Pikachu movie from Legendary Pictures. With the Pokemon resurgence, it should come as no surprise that the Pokemon Company is going to milk all of its adorable critters until, desiccated and afraid, they cry out their cute little names in pain. (Example: Pokemon Generations.)

With that in mind, you can watch Pokemon: The First Movie on the big screen as a matinee on Saturday, October 29th and in the evening on Tuesday, November 1st. The film will play at select Cinemark movie theaters across the country.

Pokemon: The First movie was originally released in  Japan on July 18, 1998, with a subsequent US release on November 6, 1999. In the spirit of nostalgia, Japanese wrestler The Great Sasuke was born on July 18, 1969, and Meet the Press made its television debuted on November 6, 1947.
