Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of Hayao Miyazaki’s most stunningly beautiful, exciting, and infrequently screened films.
“Miyazaki’s flying contraptions are a sight to behold, rivaled only by the film’s epic sweep and nonstop parade of action set-pieces.” – Film 4
A young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island in the sky, site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. Castle in the Sky is an early masterpiece of storytelling and filmmaking whose imaginative and ornately detailed vision presaged later Miyazaki films like Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. (Dir. by Hayao Miyazaki, 1986, Japan, 124 mins, Rated PG)
