Studio Ghibli Forever and Ever and Ever…

Continuing our summer tradition of a Studio Ghibli season, this year we’re bringing you a selection of more of our Ghibli favourites. These films have long been celebrated as beautifully hand-drawn works of art that transport audiences of all ages to fantastical worlds filled with unforgettable characters. Offering a real alternative to the animated blockbusters produced by Hollywood, you can enjoy some of the most imaginative stories ever bought to life on screen this August.

Some screenings in this season are in Japanese with English Subtitles, some will be English Dubbed. Please check each screening for details.
