Don’t miss this brand-new 4K restoration of Hayao Miyazaki’s action-packed 1979 feature film debut, back on the big screen!

Celebrated filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro) made his feature film debut in 1979 with this beloved chapter of the Lupin the 3rd anime saga – a precursor to his legendary work at Studio Ghibli.

“Glorious! This caper film possesses Miyazaki’s usual good-hearted charm, but he injects a manically energetic humor that his more sedate children’s films never quite achieve.” – Tasha Robinson, AV Club

In the twilight of his career, master thief Lupin III’s latest and greatest caper has hit a snag. What should’ve been bags of cash from a national casino turns out to be filled with expert counterfeits! Together with his partner-in-crime Jigen, Lupin heads to the remote nation of Cagliostro to exact revenge. Not everything goes as planned; the two encounter Clarisse, a royal damsel in distress being forced to marry the sinister Count Cagliostro against her will. Saving her won’t be easy, however, as Lupin and Jigen – together with the unpredictable lady thief Fujiko and the swordsman Goemon – must fight their way through a trap-filled castle, a deadly dungeon, and an army of professional assassins! Can Lupin rescue Clarisse, evade the cuffs of his long-time nemesis Inspector Zenigata, and uncover the secret treasures of the Castle of Cagliostro?  (Dir. by Hayao Miyazaki, 1979, Japan, in Japanese with English subtitles/dubbed in English, 99 mins., Not Rated / Recommended for ages 14+)
