FANS AFTER DARK
ANIMAINE AFTER DARK is our programming block dedicated to the mature side of anime. After Dark content is for adults 18+ with ID only and may include adult language, imagery, situations, or materials. This is a popular programming block and, since 2017, we’ve offered special Fans After Dark passes. After Dark is also included in FanPass and ScreenPass.
Fans After Dark passes are valid for ANIMAINE After Dark areas on Friday 7pm - 12am and Saturday 8pm - 12am. $20 gets you into both nights of After Dark content.
$20 // FANS AFTER DARK ONLY FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Adults escorting attendees age 6-13 may purchase a reduced cost pass for themselves. Attendees 5 and under are free. Attendees under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Looking to see the films that are part of the festival?
Each film showing requires a ticket, just like seeing movies at the cinema. You can get individual tickets, ticket books, or unlimited access with ScreenPass (see right).
Film tickets allow you to access vending areas up to one hour prior to the film.
FILM TICKET PRICING
$9 // SINGLE FILM EVENT TICKET
$40 // FIVE FILM EVENT TICKETS
Tip: Just looking for anime screenings? There will be a limited number of anime screenings during the festival that are free to FanPass holders. You only need a ticket to see anime & animated films that are part of the Shorts Competition or Feature Film portions of the festival.
Malika’s Escape is a new escape room attraction at ANIMAINE. Designed by professional escape room planners and uniquely themed to fit the convention, Malika’s Escape is one of those ANIMAINE Originals you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
The design of Malika’s Escape will tie into this year’s Bootleg Bomber event.
ScreenPass holders will receive one complimentary ticket to Malika’s Escape. All other pass or ticket holders will need to purchase an additional Malika’s Escape ticket. The cost of these tickets is less than half of the national average cost for escape rooms.
$10 // MALIKA’S ESCAPE TICKET
The Malika’s Escape attraction is located in an area of the convention center that is not accessible to those who require a wheelchair or who are unable to climb stairs. We apologize for this inconvenience and have brought our concerns about this area of the facility to the hotel.
All other areas of the convention are fully accessible.
Looking to do everything?
ScreenPass at ANIMAINE lets you experience the whole festival , plus an invite-only party, access to all screenings and film events, and Malika’s Escape. Special seating is available for ScreenPass holders at select events.
