‘Haruhi Suzumiya’ and those North Carolina teens

The two items listed in the title to this post aren’t related to each other, but ehh, what the hey … it’s the most elegant way I could find to merge them without having to write two separate posts, heh.

First on our agenda today is the long-awaited release of a firm screening schedule for The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, scheduled to open at the Kahala 8 Theaters on Friday. (It’s been long awaited for me, anyway … I’ve been clicking and re-clicking on the Consolidated Theaters and Fandango websites repeatedly for several weeks now, ever since the film re-emerged on the radar.)

We now know that that first day will feature four screenings, at 12:40, 3:50, 7 and 10:10 p.m. Saturday and Monday will feature the same schedule, while Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday eliminate the 10:10 p.m. show. As usual, it looks like anything beyond that will be determined on a week-by-week basis … but for something as niche as Haruhi, my standard suggestion of “the sooner you can see it, the better” applies. Advance tickets are now available on Fandango.

Meanwhile, a quick update on Mr. R. and his request for more manga for his library serving teens in North Carolina, detailed in our last post: Mission accomplished! All four projects have been funded … and judging by the looks of who donated to those projects, all of his manga-related projects were funded either by readers of this blog or your tag-team in fandom who actually writes this blog.

Great job, everyone! But let’s not forget that there are still many worthy projects from teachers left to be funded nationwide; go to DonorsChoose.org and help fund one, won’t you?
