Preview Screenings this Thursday: Hit Man - one of the most anticipated comedies of the year

Closes February 7
🇯🇵 Nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Feature

These showtimes are for the Japanese language version with English subtitles. We are also playing the English dubbed version.

While the Second World War rages, the teenage Mahito, haunted by his mother’s tragic death, is relocated from Tokyo to the serene rural home of his new stepmother Natsuko, a woman who bears a striking resemblance to the boy’s mother. As he tries to adjust, this strange new world grows even stranger following the appearance of a persistent gray heron, who perplexes and bedevils Mahito, dubbing him the “long-awaited one.”

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

Observer

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.
