The Pokémon company announced Monday that Pokémon fans will be able to watch "Pokémon: The First Movie — Mewtwo Strikes Back" again at 200 Cinemark theaters across the U.S. on Oct. 29 and Nov. 1. Tickets cost $5 each and are on sale starting Oct. 17.
The 1998 movie is based on the Japanese Anime series, which inspired popular games such as "Pokémon GO." It was released in the U.S. by Warner Bros. in November 1999 and grossed $85.7 million. The 75-minute-long movie stars Ash and Pikachu as they face off against the Pokémon Mewtwo. The original short film "Pikachu's Vacation" will also accompany the movie as it did in the original. The screening is limited to 2 days only.
The English version of "Pokémon: The First Movie" was different from the Japanese one since it projected Mewtwo as a villain.
While Pokémon has been around for 20 years, the interest in the brand has shot up recently due to "Pokémon Go."
