Studio Ghibli at Gateway Film Center

My local independent movie theater decided to drop the bomb that they have partnered with GKids and Studio Ghibli to present one of the first ever U.S. presentations of the complete Studio Ghibli canon, which includes some of the most lauded anime films in history. Every week beginning January 1, 2016 and continuing through May 2016, Gateway Film Center will screen a film from the most important and influential anime company in the world, Studio Ghibli. Over the course of the series, the film center will present the entirety of the Studio Ghibli catalog, in the order of its original release. All movies will have showtimes throughout the week and they’ll be offering Dubbed Saturdays and Subbed Sundays for all the weekly movies where both formats are available. I have decided to enjoy the entirety of this marathon by viewing the Dubbed versions of the films.

I am excited to see these wonderful films and encourage anyone and everyone to follow along!
