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

Closes February 10
🇯🇵 Final screening on Saturday February 10

A young boy named Mahito yearning for his mother ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead. There, death comes to an end, and life finds a new beginning. A semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death, and creation, in tribute to friendship, from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.

The legendary filmmaker has returned, thankfully, to deliver one of his best, most imaginative and mature movies yet.


The Boy and the Heron may or may not be Miyazaki’s final movie, but either way, it’s a staggering addition to one of animation’s most totemic filmographies.
