Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” In Theaters Next Week

On December 4th and 5th, Fathom Events will present nationwide showings of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to celebrate the film’s 15th anniversary. Spirited Away is the only anime film to win an Academy Award, winning Best Animated Feature for 2003, and a favorite among many fans of Hayao Miyazaki. Showing with Spirited Away will be an animated short from Studio Ghibli, Ghiblies: Episode 2.

Plot Summary from Anime News Network:

On their way to their new home, a young girl, Chihiro, and her parents stumble into what appears to be an abandoned theme park. But all is not as it seems, as the theme park is a bath-house for the spirits, and not a place where humans are welcome. Chihiro must fend for herself and rescue her parents, as they have been turned to pigs as punishment for eating the food meant for the gods.
