Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle Playing in Theaters this Week

This week is the final week of Fathom Event’s Ghiblifest, and they are ending it strong with a fan-favorite in Hayao MIyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle. The film will be playing theaters throughout Florida and the rest of the country on November 26th, 27th, and 29th.

Plot Summary from GKIDS:

From the legendary Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki, Howl’s Moving Castle is an acclaimed fantasy based on the novel of the same name, and the second Studio Ghibli film (after Spirited Away) to be nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards®. Sophie, an average teenage girl working in a hat shop, finds her life thrown into turmoil when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome but mysterious wizard named Howl. But after this chance meeting, the young girl is turned into a 90-year old woman by the vain and conniving Witch of the Waste. Embarking on an incredible adventure to lift the curse, she finds refuge in Howl’s magical moving castle. As the true power of Howl’s wizardry is revealed, and his relationship with Sophie deepens, our young grey heroine finds herself fighting to protect them both from a dangerous war of sorcery that threatens their world.

Tickets to Howl’s Moving Castle can be purchased here.
