“Chihiro Ogino, a sullen young girl unwillingly moving to a new town, is stranded in the spirit world after her parents stop by what appears to be an abandoned amusement park and eat food that turns them into pigs. At first, her only aid is Haku, a mysterious boy who finds her shelter and a job in a bathhouse that caters to these spirits; eventually, Chihiro makes more friends as she searches for a way to make her parents human again and escape the spirit world before she forgets her real identity.”

Demon Slayer Premiere Event, April 2nd

POWA is having another theatre outing to see a special premiere event. The long-awaited adaptation of the Shonen Jump manga series, Demon Slayer, has set its sights on the big screen for an epic Australian premiere. For ONE NIGHT ONLY, devour five episodes of the brand-new series in a feature-length presentation.

As we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed.

“Since ancient times, rumours have abounded of man-eating demons lurking in the woods resulting in the local townsfolk never venturing outside at night. Legend has it that a demon slayer also roams the night, hunting down these bloodthirsty demons. For young Tanjirou, these rumours will soon to become his harsh reality when Tanjirou finds his family slaughtered and the lone survivor, his sister Nezuko, turned into a demon.

To his surprise, however, Nezuko still shows signs of human emotion and thought. Thus begins Tanjirou’s quest to fight demons and turn his sister human again.”

We hope to see you there!
