Anyone who missed catching the CGI animated spectacular-spectacular, Lupin III: The First or Promare on the big screen will be excited to learn they’re back! There’s no holding a thief down, and the the latter, neither can mutants be restrained! In what’ll be different this time around is a 4DX experience! That is, viewers can get the feel of what it’s like riding in Lupin’s Fiat 500, and the latter … it’ll be explosions and other ground-shaking fun.

Plus, Studio Ghibli 2021 Returns! There’s no denying most of this studio’s works look better on the big screen, and the films that’s being presented and are celebrating an anniversary include: 

Spirited Away Moivie PosterSpirited Away (celebrating 20th anniversary)
October 3, 4 & 6

When 10-year-old Chihiro acts out, and her family finds an abandoned amusement park. just where they go is not a trip to Wonderland! Instead, she loses her identity and the supernatural forces have other idea in mind for these lost souls. The adage here is to know who you are, otherwise Haku (Miyu Irino) will get you … Well, that’s unless you got allies. 

Howl’s Moving Castle
October 24, 25 & 28

Sophie never had that easy life. Her only joy is in meeting a handsome stranger in the hat shop she works in. However, other folks are not as kind to her, and a witch cursed her with old age. The problem with reversing this spell is in the fact she can’t reveal how it all happened. Well, that stranger can help, and that’s where the adventure begins…

Castle in the Sky
November 14, 15 & 18

This beloved classic plays with the search for El Dorado formula somewhat. Instead of gold, the pirates and government wants the technology that powers the castle in the sky. It’s from a bygone world. When Pazu literally has a girl fall onto his lap, the adventure that comes afterwards won’t be easy. Sheeta is unaware that she’s the last descendent and she holds the key to finding where that floating fortress is. 

My Neighbour Totoro
December 5, 6 & 9

Who doesn’t want to hug a Totoro? This hybrid cat, owl and rabbit creature is cuddly and offers wish fulfillment to Mei and Satsuki, two girls who’ve moved out to the country side to be near their mom. She’s in a private hospital for an undisclosed medical problem, and all they want is for her to come home. This enduring anime is all about hope. The fantasy elements combines a sense of dreamy wonder, and that’s all anyone needs to be happy.
