Howl’s Moving Castle

Free admission

A shy young milliner is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch. At first horrified, she discovers a new zest for adventure. Her only chance for breaking the spell, though, lies with a moody, insecure wizard.

“Admirers of [Miyazaki’s] work, which is wildly imaginative, emotionally intense, and surpassingly gentle, will find much to appreciate in this film because it demonstrates, once again, his visual ingenuity and his sensitivity as a storyteller." —New York Times
