Ghibli

From Up on Poppy Hill

Sunday, December 22, 2019 - Friday, January 10, 2020

From the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro) comes an inspired coming-of-age story set in 1960s Japan. In a lovingly hand-drawn tale, two students develop a budding romance as they join forces to save their high school’s ramshackle clubhouse from demolition. Japan’s biggest box-office hit of the year and winner of the Japan Academy Prize for Animation, FROM UP ON POPPY HILL conjures up a pure, wistful and nuanced evocation of the past and young love through its rich palette and painterly detail of glistening harbors, sun-drenched gardens and bustling cityscapes. English-language version features the voices of Jamie Lee Curtis, Christina Hendricks, Ron Howard, Aubrey Plaza and others.

For all showtimes 6:00pm and later, the film will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Morning and afternoon screenings will be screened in the English language version.

Screening as part of our series The Films of Studio Ghibli.
