Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time — Official Theater List

Yusei, Jaden, and Yugi -- the three heroes team up in Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time

An official, preliminary list of theaters scheduled to show Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time is now available! Browse through the list of U.S. theater locations, or search for a theater near you! The list from Cinedigm currently contains a little less than half of the 250 theaters screening the film.

If you can’t yet find a local theater showing the 3D movie, don’t worry! Check again a little later for more updates. Or, if you’re the impatient type, try searching for theaters yourself! Many theaters that will be playing the film and have showtimes already up are not yet on the official list — including some who have screenings scheduled between February 18 and 25 (the week before the official February 26 release date)!

Earlier today, 4Kids also put out a press release for the 10th anniversary film, revealing that the movie will have a “ten-minute back story on the three main characters […] that incorporates scenes from all three animated series” — footage that was not present when the film premiered early last year in Japan! When the movie returns to Japanese theaters (also on February 26) for an encore screening, it will include ten minutes of “special supplemental footage” presented in 2D. There’s currently no word on whether this footage will be the same as that to be included in the American premiere, though it would seem oddly coincidental if it weren’t. The PR also at last confirms the dates for the film’s U.S. screenings that we’ve long known.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time will play in select theaters on February 26 and 27, and again on March 5 and 6. Don’t forget to check out the official movie website and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan Page on Facebook, as well as @YGO3D on Twitter, for all of the latest news about the film!

Update (March 20): Well, Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D has come and gone, with the final showings taking place earlier today. (Bless you, Studio Movie Grill, for still screening the film well after the official dates!) Now that the movie has completely left U.S. theaters, I feel like I can offer this tidbit without being accused of spoilers: the “ten-minute back story” described above indeed contains scenes taken straight from the classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s series. The scenes helped to flush out some of the background and motivations of the main characters in the film and were rendered in 3D specially for the big screen. These scenes were not the same as the “special supplemental footage” that was shown in Japan. Looks like their identical lengths were a funny coincidence after all!

  1. Hey do yo know when and if it comes to Juneau Alaska theatres me and my friends really wanna see it! Do You Know if there is a way to request it?

  2. If they’re not already on Cinedigm’s list, try checking again a little later, maybe closer to the film’s release date. Alternatively, you can check some of the other movie ticketing/showtime websites that I previously mentioned to see if there are any theaters not yet on the list that have released their schedules for the movie. It’s up to the distributor to decide which theaters will receive a print of the movie. I doubt a request will carry much weight, but there’s certainly no harm in trying!

  3. Do you know where it will be in theatres in NC?

  4. Nope, I don’t know, sorry. Read the comment above yours.

  5. i love yugioh yugiohgx yugioh5ds

  6. is there any showing in cleveland ohio

  7. Have you already searched for theaters and/or showtimes using the provided links? If so, read the second comment on this post. Thanks.

  8. Cool, thanks for the post. I hope that the movie plays in Long Island, NY. It looks like it’d be fun to see.

  9. By now, all of the theaters playing the movie should have released information about it. Make sure you check the websites I talked about!

  10. Do you know how long the movie is? movietickets.com says it’s only 49 minutes, but Cinedigm says its a full-length animation. If you know, that’d be awesome!

  11. The movie is about one hour long. “Full-length” is just a marketing term and is determined arbitrarily. AMPAS says that full-length films must have a running time of over 40 minutes.

  12. Does anyone know when This movie will come to Portland, Oregon?

  13. Sorry, the movie has already left theaters. It only ran in February and March, as I wrote in the post. Keep your eyes peeled for a home video release in the future!
