Animayhem OVA Festival

Animayhem OVA Festival

The OVA Festival is back for a second year! This secret screening festival is an extremely rare opportunity to see deepcut anime masterpieces on the big screen and experience a mini anime convention in Portland’s famous movie palace!

O.V.A. or Original Video Animation: films and miniseries made for release on home video without screening in theaters or on television.

The AniMayhem OVA Festival is a curated marathon of four of the best, most cult-classic, OVA titles to be released throughout the 80’s and 90’s. The films will run between 30 and 60 minutes long each with a short intermission in the middle to break them up.

For two hours leading up to the screening, the Hollywood Theatre will turn into a mini anime convention with local artists and vendors selling merchandise.

Vending will start at 5:00pm and the screening will start at 7:00pm.

In general, the Hollywood Theatre does not provide content advisories about the subject matter shown in our theatre. Films exhibited don’t necessarily reflect the views of the Hollywood Theatre.
