Perhaps the last film destined to come from the legendary Studio Ghibli, this beautifully animated tale would make a worthy swansong. It’s a delicate, heartwarming story of a lonely child and the mysterious new friend she meets from across the bay… "Timeless… bursting with colour and detail… it arrives like a classic heirloom uncovered and restored for contemporary eyes." Variety

**Please note, this run is screened in Japanese with English subtitles, except for Sun. May 31 & Tue. Jun 2 when they are dubbed in English.**
