"Ponyo" is now in 329 theaters nationwide. This is down over 500 from the 890 theaters showing the film just two weeks ago.  Only two of these remaining theaters are in the Cleveland area  Having made $14.4 million to date, it has still not gained any ground on the all-time theatrical anime box office chart.

"Ponyo" showtimes:

Regal Richmond Town Square Stadium 20:

 A movie based lightly on the "Eureka Seven" anime series is coming to theaters Thursday, September 24th for one night only.  According to Anime News Network, "Eureka Seven - Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers" contains the same characters, but introduces a "new 'Eureka Seven' mythos."  This implies that it will be a standalone movie that requires no familiarity with the series, but this is not guaranteed.  After the movie there will be several special features about the movie's production and adaptation.
