The table of places/dates doesn't cut & paste cleanly so go here:
Fullmetal Alchemist London Screening with Guests June 8 There will be a screening of Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos on Friday June 8 at London's BFI Southbank Centre, near Waterloo station. The screening will be attended by the film's director, Kazuya Murata, who also has credits on Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Eureka 7; and also by Masahiko Minami, the co-founder of Studio Bones. The guests will give a Q&A after the screening. The event (not yet listed on the BFI site) is presented by Manga Entertainment, the BFI and Aniplex.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos is a spinoff from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The film relates a previously untold adventure of the Elric brothers as they become involved with a rebellion in a distant valley.
The announcement was made during a 107-minute podcast which can be downloaded from the Manga UK blog.

Wow, London showing! That's exciting! Thank you for bringing the awesome news, Merlyn LeRoy!
As for the board, we ran into some snag with our server, and we had to keep our board off-line while we took care of it. It took longer than anticipated, and we apologise for the inconveniences this has caused.

It's great that the movie's getting a showing in the UK now. But it's a shame that I can't afford to go all the way down to London. (Not to mention endure the travel sickness if I were to go there. =X)
