Recommended for ages 9+*
From the animation powerhouse of Studio Ghibli and the director Hayao Miyazaki comes the whimsical tale of Chihiro, a courageous young girl who uses her wits to escape a strange world of spirits. Winner of an Academy Award, full of extraordinary characters, and ranked as one of the best animated films of all time, this gorgeously drawn classic of world cinema is a must-see for all ages. (35mm, 2001, dir. Hayao Miyazaki, Japanese with English dubbed, 124 min.)
*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby.
