From the same dedicated staff and volunteers who've held Animaritime since 2004, comes Animinitime: two one-day events with the purpose of continuing to bring the best of anime and gaming to the Maritimes. A family friendly event with lots to do and see, we strive to make sure there's something for every fan, new and old. We hope to see you there in 2010!

Website Upgrade – Animinitime 2.0

February 15, 2010

With the conventions only a few months away (time’s flying!), we thought it was high-time for some more useful bells and whistles around here – so welcome to Animinitime 2.0!

Not only is the navigation of our site a bit smoother and load time a little nicer, but we’re also happy to finally allow the option for our attendees to comment directly about our news and events. We hope everyone likes the new look and has some fun with the new features and extras.

Cowboy Bebop The Movie – Special Midnight Showing!

February 10, 2010

Just when you thought you’d be getting a full nights’ sleep before Animinitime Halifax, we at Animinitime are thrilled to announce in partnership with Halifax’s Anime@Large club, that we’ll be having a special midnight showing of the popular anime hit-flick, Cowboy Bebop The Movie: Knockin’ On Heavens’ Door!

The film will play at the downtown Halifax Parklane Theatres on the evening of April 24, 2010! The movie falls between the Super Picnic and Animintime event, giving you two straight days and a night of anime, cosplay and gaming in the Maritimes!

Where can I buy tickets?

Tickets are $5 (no tax) a person and are available at the following locations:

- Strange Adventures
- Anime@Large’s Super Picnic
- Parklane Theatre, half an hour prior to showtime

We can’t wait to see everyone there – sleep deprivation is part of what makes a convention a convention afterall, right? :)

**NOTE** Tickets for Cowboy Bebop  are separate from Animinitime registration and are not included in the price of registration for either convention.
