I'm a big fan of the way The Roxy programs its schedule to fit a certain theme for every month. February was Black History Month, so films directed by black filmmakers and starring black actors took the spotlight. Ditto Women's History Month in March, and April was a month-long celebration of the films of Stanley Kubrick. And sometimes, when you think of a great pun, there's no going back.

That's why May 1st kicks off AniMay at The Roxy, which means a bunch of anime classics will be screening at the theater all month long. The main feature will be on Wednesday nights.. Here's the list of what'll be showing:

May 1st - Akira

May 8th - Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

May 15th - Paprika

May 22nd - Metropolis

May 29th - Tokyo Godfathers
