RWBY’ Vol. 6 Premiere Arrives in Theaters Thanks to Fathom Events

Be the first to see the newest episode of RWBY Volume 6 on the big screen! All aboard the Argus Limited! Team RWBY and their friends are taking their first steps towards transporting the Relic of Knowledge to Atlas. Making their way to another continent won’t be a simple journey, and the question on everyone’s mind isn’t “if” things will go wrong… but “when.”

This fall, RWBY fans will have the exclusive opportunity to be the first to see the newest episode of Volume 6 during the “RWBY Volume 6 Premiere” one-night event. This exclusive cinema event will feature the premiere of the first episode from “RWBY Volume 6” along with several chapters of Volume 5 to catch fans up on all the western-style anime action from the creators of RWBY.
