Eddie Lebron Films in Collaboration with DC Anime Club Presents the Washington, DC Premier of MegaMan The Movie on May 15, 2010 3:30 pm at the Martin Luthur King, Jr Memorial Library in Room A5 on the A Level of the Library.
In the year 20XX, Dr. Thomas Light, an Nobel Prize winning professor in the field of Robotics, creates a series of 6 revolutionary robots entitled the “Robot Master Series DRN” in an effort to use robotics as a mean to better mankind. As a personal project, Dr. Light creates 2 helper androids named Roll (a female) and Rock (a male) who are made to be as human as possible from appearance to behavior. Meanwhile, after the creation of the series gains Light his Nobel Prize in Physics and notoriety, his partner and colleague, Dr. Albert Wily, grows enraged and jealous of Light’s success. Secretly, a man who wants control and power, Dr. Wily decides to reprogram and steal the robot master series to do his bidding so he can wreak havoc and gain control of Fujiwara city. As Wily begins to steal more of Light’s creations, it becomes clear to him he has the resources to systemically gain more and more control in an effort to reach his ultimate goal: total world domination. With a strong sense of duty and regard for humanity, Rock volunteers to receive a battle upgrade in an effort to battle Wily’s forces, thus donning the name "Megaman". The battle for humanity is now between Megaman and all the bots at Wily’s disposal. Based on the 1987 video game of the same name by Capcom. This is a non-profit adaptation made by fans, for fans.
This event is free and open to the public. Ages 13 and up.
