Studio Ghibli Film Fest


Studio Ghibli is one of the most innovative and profoundly creative animation studios of all-time. Beginning in June, fans can experience six SG classics on the big screen as part of Fathom Events' "Studio Ghibli Fest 2017", being held in partnership with GKids.

Theaters near you will be screening one film each month from June to November. All of them were directed by the incredible Hayao Miyazaki. Sunday afternoons will feature the dubbed into English versions, while on Monday nights the films will be shown in their original versions with subtitles. Here's the lineup:

August 27 & 28 - "Castle in the Sky" (1986) - The first Studio Ghibli film
September 24 & 25 - "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" (1984) - Miyazaki directed it before Studio Ghibli was founded, but it is still considered as part of their collection.
