Spotlight on Studio Ghibli in L.A.

If you're going to be in the Los Angeles area in late November, here's your chance to see two classic Studio Ghibli films on the big screen for the first time in years!

Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986)

On November 26, 2011, Film Independent at LACMA will host "Spotlight on Studio Ghibli," a one-night event celebrating two of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's most acclaimed classics, Castle in the Sky and Spirited Away.  Both films are celebrating anniversaries this year and will be screened using a brand new 35mm print with original Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Spirited Away (2001)

The Studio Ghibli event ends a month-long celebration of film at LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  According to their website, "the inclusive series offers unique film experiences, bringing together Film Independent’s large community of filmmakers and wide spectrum of audiences, with LACMA’s commitment to presenting cinema in an artistic and historical context."

Tickets are $10 for the general public.  For showtimes, please check out LACMA's website.
