Grave of the Fireflies

Jun 2, 2018 & Jun 3, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Widely considered one of the best animated films of all time, Grave of the Fireflies is arguably Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata’s magnum opus. As the Empire of the Sun crumbles upon itself and a rain of firebombs falls upon Japan, the final death march of a nation is echoed in millions of smaller tragedies. This is the story of Seita and his younger sister Setsuko, two children born at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and now cast adrift in a world that lacks not the care to shelter them, but simply the resources. Forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of fires that swept entire cities from the face of the earth, their doomed struggle is both a tribute to the human spirit and the stuff of nightmares. Based on the retellings of survivor Akiyui Nosaka, the film exemplifies the power of animation. Indeed, Nosaka received many offers to create a film version of his story ultimately concluded that it could not be told in any other medium.

Ponyo

Saturday, Jun 2, 2018 at 12:00 PM - English

The sweetly poetic fairy tale Ponyo, Hayao Miyazaki’s ninth animated feature film, is a delightful spin on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid. Perfect for audiences of all ages, it centers on the friendship between five-year-old Sosuke and a magical goldfish named Ponyo, the young daughter of a sorcerer father and a sea-goddess mother. After a chance encounter, Ponyo yearns to become a human so she can be with Sosuke. As to be expected with Miyazaki, the film is awash in pure unbridled imagination and visual wonder — but it is the tender love, humor, and devotion exhibited by Ponyo and Sosuke that form the emotional heart of the film. This film is suitable for ages 5+

My Neighbor Totoro

Sunday, Jun 3, 2018 at 11:00 AM - English

One of the most endearing films ever made for children, My Neighbor Totoro, celebrating a 30th anniversary this year, is a deceptively simple tale of two girls, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to a new house in the countryside while he cares for their ailing mother. They soon discover that the surrounding forests are home to a family of Totoros, gentle but powerful creatures who live in a huge and ancient camphor tree and are seen only by children. But beneath the film’s playfulness and narrative simplicity lie depths of wisdom. As with much of Miyazaki’s work, My Neighbor Totoro is infused with an almost spiritual reverence for the power of nature. Like Satsuki and Mei, audiences are left with a sense of wonder at the beauty, mystery and preciousness of the world around us. This film is suitable for ages 5+

When Marnie Was There

Jun 4, 2018 & Jun 5, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

When shy, artistic Anna moves to the seaside to live with her aunt and uncle, she stumbles upon an old mansion surrounded by marshes, and the mysterious young girl, Marnie, who lives there. The two girls instantly form a unique connection and friendship that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. As the days go by, a nearly magnetic pull draws Anna back to the Marsh House again and again, and she begins to piece together the truth surrounding her strange new friend. Based on the young adult novel by Joan G. Robinson and directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty), When Marnie Was There has been described as “Ghibli Gothic,” with its moonlit seascapes, glowing orchestral score, and powerful dramatic portrayals that build to a stormy climax.

Only Yesterday

Jun 6, 2018 & Jun 7, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Having lived her whole life in the city, 27-year-old Taeko decides to visit her relatives in the countryside. As she travels, memories of her youth resurface and after meeting young farmer Toshio, she wonders if she’s been true to the dreams of her childhood self. Deftly switching between past and present, Only Yesterday is a beautifully animated feature of time and tone, rich with humor and stirring emotion. In typical Isao Takahata style, Only Yesterday moves away from the usual fantasy settings of Ghibli films to tell a realistic, adult drama – demonstrating the versatility of animated storytelling and all the skillful handling of a renowned animation studio.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Jul 14, 2018 & Jul 15, 2018 - at 11:30 AM - English

Charlie Bucket discovers an elusive “Golden Ticket” that grants the holder a lifetime supply of candy and a tour of Willy Wonka’s famous factory. Joined by four other winners, who are some of the most odious children you’ll ever meet, Charlie journeys through a strange, surreal landscape featuring a river of chocolate and other fantastical sweets. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Roald Dahl story if it didn’t take a dark, macabre turn: one by one, the kids are punished by Wonka for violating the spirit of the factory as they succumb to their perilous vices. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is an established cult classic that continues to transfix children and adults alike with its imaginative setting and twisted sense of humor. Gene Wilder, ever the deadpan genius, is in top form as the eccentric chocolatier.
