To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the internationally acclaimed Patlabor franchise, Genco Co., Ltd. which owns the rights to the Patlabor series, and United Cinemas Co., Ltd. which operates cineplexes and theaters throughout Japan have decided to screen "Patlabor the Movie 4DX" in theaters nationwide from April 17th (Fri.)

Fans will be able to experience Operation Tokyo Bay in the sensational 4DX format! (The "sound renewal" version of the film will be screened)

30th anniversary screenings

This 4DX format screening follows two screenings at the end of last year commemorating the franchise's 30th anniversary, one for a limited six-day run in November at extra volume with special speakers, and another run in December in Odaiba, both of which were sold out.

Commemorative goods

In addition to a reprint of the original movie leaflet (same design as poster above), there will also be a 30th anniversary memorial booklet for sale:
