My first anime experience in theaters remains my best. I saw Spirited Away when it premiered in the U.S. in 2002, and even though I had already seen a couple Studio Ghibli films, I was not prepared for what an amazing experience it would be to watch Miyazaki’s latest on the big screen.
GKIDS and Fathom Events are the midst of Studio Ghibli Fest, through which they’re screening a number of the studio’s film in select North American theaters. Spirited Away gets its turn on October 27th, 28th, and 30th, and we’d love to send you and a friend! All you have to do is be following one of our social media platforms and either on there or in the comments below tell us whom your favorite Ghibli heroine is. Is it Chihiro? Ponyo? Nausicaa? Someone else? We’d love to know!
The screenings are in North America, so please be living here in the states. We’ll arrange a time and place for your screening after selecting a random winner two weeks from today.
