Miyazaki’s Oscar-winning anime classic on the big screen! Wandering through an abandoned carnival site, ten-year-old Chihiro is separated from her parents and stumbles into a dream-like spirit world where she is put to work in a bathhouse for the gods. Here she encounters a vast menagerie of impossibly inventive characters; shape-shifting phantoms and spirits, and must find the inner strength to outsmart her captors and return to her family. Combining Japanese mythology with Through the Looking Glass-type whimsy, Spirited Away cemented Miyazaki’s reputation as an icon of inspired animation and wondrous storytelling. English dubbed version. Common Sense Media recommends for children age 9+ Family Pass ticket: $28 (for family of 1 or 2 adults and up to 4 children, 5 total) “The film is not recommended for toddlers and easily frightened little tykes. But for everyone else, kid or grown-up, this thrilling foray into magical realms is a must.” ~Steven Rea, The Philadelphia Inquirer “Children may not understand everything that happens—I’m not sure even Miyazaki himself does—but they will almost certainly be fascinated, and undoubtedly delighted.” ~Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press Click on the Trailer link to the right side for the English dubbed trailer.
