Japan Outreach Program to host free film series

Movie fans can enjoy three free Japanese films at an upcoming series at Mississippi State University’s Bost Extension Center.

The Japan Outreach Program at MSU is presenting the comedy “ROBO-G” on Aug. 22 from 6-8 p.m., the animated adventure “Brave Story” on Sept. 12 from 5-7 p.m., and the drama “Always: Sunset on Third Street 3” on Sept. 26 from 5-7 p.m.

All three films will be shown with Japanese language audio and English subtitles. Free popcorn, cotton candy and drinks will be provided. The series is a celebration of the recently established Japan Outreach Program and the arrival of the Yokohama Tire plant.
