January 15th • 3:00pm (subbed) & 6:00pm (dubbed) | Art House Movie Buffs at The Babcock Theatre
One of Studio Ghibli’s most celebrated films, Spirited Away made a huge impact on American audiences in 2001, at a time when Japanese anime was still not widely appreciated in the US. A surprisingly rich coming-of-age drama that unfolds in a uniquely beautiful fantasy realm, its a perfect introduction to foreign films that can help young people experience storytelling from other cultures (a major component to why we launched Movie Buffs in the first place). And if you aren’t ready to dive into subtitles, join us at 6pm for the English dubbed version. Whether it’s your first or 50th time seeing it, enjoy the delicate beauty and creativity of this masterpiece of animation!
