A major part of the New People Center is the new 143-seat VIZ Cinema movie theater located on the basement floor. New People Center is promising an array of contemporary Japanese feature films, documentaries, anime and more to be shown at this theater, including all three parts of the 20th Century Boys trilogy. The third installment will make its debut on the same day as its premiere in Japan, a very rare occurrence, if not the first instance of this kind of simultaneous release of a Japanese film in the U.S.
