If there's one thing Brisbanites like, it's watching Studio Ghibli films in a cinema. In fact, over the last three years, Dendy Portside has hosted a showcase, GOMA has put together a Hayao Miyazaki retrospective, and the Redlands Performing Arts Centre have held their own celebration. Now, it's New Farm Cinemas' turn.
Screening on Sunday afternoons until October 23, it's not just the Japanese animation house movie buffs know and love that's the attraction here. Fans should be jumping for joy at the chance to see some of their lesser-known efforts on a big screen. You won't be watching Spirited Away, but you will feel like you've been transported somewhere magical.
Catch The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, When Marnie Was There, Only Yesterday and brand new co-production The Red Turtle, with all four bound to rank among your new favourites. If you've missed their limited cinema runs or fest appearances in the past, consider this your chance to catch up. At only $13 per session, make like a moving castle and mosey your way over there.
