When Marnie Was There

  • Jul 27, 2015 until Jul 30, 2015

    Back by Popular Demand!

    Yet another splendid escape from Studio Ghibli, this picturesque and poignant animation perfectly captures the loneliness of a young girl in a sleepy seaside town--and the magic and excitement of making new friends… who aren’t quite what they seem.

    Based on bestselling novel by Joan G. Robinson, When Marnie Was There is the second film from Hiromasa Yonebayashi, animator on classics Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Princess Mononoke. Widely speculated to be the last film from beloved Studio Ghibli, When Marnie Was There combines elements of all these great films into one powerful and painterly portrait of youth.

    “Wistful and stirringly humane, When Marnie Was There is… emblematic of [Studio Ghibli’s] collective greatness. In a way, that's the most perfect thing it could be.” – David Ehrlich, Time Out.
