Studio Ghibli on the Big Screen

Spirited Away

American Cinematheque, the non-profit group “dedicated exclusively to the public presentation of the Moving Picture in all its forms” has a real treat in store for those that are as appreciative of Hayao Miyazaki as I am. LA area theaters The Egyptian and the Aero will be featuring a retrospective of Studio Ghibli, the film genius behind My Neighbor Totoro, Castles in the Sky, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and so many other must see films. January 26-February 12 viewers can watch Miyazaki’s films on the big screen, as well as see “new 35mm prints of several films that have never been released in North America.” What a rare treat this is for Hayao Miyazaki’s fans. More information can be found on the American Cinematheque website. I would definitely recommend watching The Cat Returns if you haven’t seen it yet. It is truly one of the best that Studio Ghibli has given us.

Side note: Los Angelinos have a real treat in their backyard. Check out other activities on the calendar and you will find screenings of Mad Max and Back to the Future, as well as other cinema gems, like Citizen Kane and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
