New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

March 13, 14, 16 & 17

Part of the series March Break Movies (March 13 to 17), featuring $5 admission for everyone and $5 kids combos (small popcorn + juice box)!

We also have two regular evening screenings of Ponyo in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

A fantasy suitable for younger kids from animation master Hayao Miyazaki: During a forbidden excursion to see the surface world, a goldfish princess encounters a human boy named Sosuke, who gives her the name Ponyo. Ponyo longs to become human, and as her friendship with Sosuke grows, she becomes more humanlike. Ponyo’s father brings her back to their ocean kingdom, but so strong is Ponyo’s wish to live on the surface that she breaks free, and in the process, spills a collection of magical elixirs that endanger Sosuke’s village.

If you want to see something suitable for all ages that will dazzle you sideways and remind you of the awesome power of animation done right, you should see this.

News of the World

It’s one of Miyazaki’s funniest and most intimate films so far, partly because of the engaging matter-of-factness with which he marries the extravagantly fantastic with the comforting realities of everyday life.
