Genndy Tartakovsky’s new adult series, Primal, is receiving a limited seven-day run at the Downtown Independent LA (251 S. Main St.) from September 20-26th.
The theatrical release will come ahead of its Adult Swim debut on October 7. It’s not clear whether the entire series is being shown or if a theatrical cut of certain episodes has been made.
Could the theatrical version of Primal make an Oscar run?
It’s a real possibility, though it’s not clear if Adult Swim, a subsidiary or Warnermedia, will run the feature version of Primal for the Academy Awards. However, the format of this theatrical run — public exhibition in Los Angeles County for at least seven consecutive days, with at least three daily screenings — meets the qualification requirements for the Oscars. Adult Swim previously submitted Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for the Academy Awards.
