There is no better way to appreciate the magic of Studio Ghibli than on the big screen! Movie-lovers of all ages will adore this double-bill pairing of two beloved classics from Japan’s famed Studio Ghibli's master storytellers Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata – PONYO and POM POKO. On Tuesday, May 9, both films will screen in their original Japanese with English subtitles – see one, or see them both!
PONYO is director Hayao Miyazaki's (SPIRITED AWAY, PRINCESS MONONOKE) ninth feature, and follows the story of 5-year old Sosuke, the son of a sailor who lives a quiet life on an oceanside cliff with his mother Lisa. One fateful day, he finds a beautiful goldfish trapped in a bottle on the beach and upon rescuing her, names her Ponyo. But she is no ordinary goldfish. The daughter of a masterful wizard and a sea goddess, Ponyo uses her father's magic to transform herself into a young girl and quickly falls in love with Sosuke, but the use of such powerful sorcery causes a dangerous imbalance in the world. As the moon steadily draws nearer to the earth and Ponyo's father sends the ocean's mighty waves to find his daughter, the two children embark on an adventure of a lifetime to save the world and fulfill Ponyo's dreams of becoming human.
"... a visually stunning fairy tale that's a sweetly poetic treat for children of all ages." (Rotten Tomatoes)
