Studio Ghibli Film Festival Part 3

The third part of this magical cinema tribute.

July 17, 2018

If there's one thing Brisbanites like, it's watching Studio Ghibli films in a cinema. In fact, over the last few years, a whole heap of cinemas around town have hosted their own celebrates dedicated to the Japanese animation house. The Elizabeth Picture Theatre joined in earlier this year, and it was such a hit that the venue is brought the film festival back for a second season — and now it's continuing for a third.

Screening twice a week throughout September until the beginning of November — on Thursday evenings at 6.30pm and Sunday afternoons at 4pm, to be specific — fans can expect more of Studio Ghibli's gorgeous features to get a run. Yes, you should make like a moving castle to see Howl's Moving Castle this time, and to feel like you've been transported somewhere magical across the rest of the program.

Catch My Neighbours the Yamadas, The Cat Returns, Tales from Earthsea and Arrietty — plus Ponyo, Porco Rosso and The Wind Rises too. If you've missed these films in their limited cinema runs or fest appearances in the past, consider this your chance to catch up. At only $12 per session, you'll be positively spirited away.
