Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki)

Filling the gap in the series as Roxy isn't about for this one.

"A fantasy adventure film unlike any other, SPIRITED AWAY tells the story of Chihiro, a capricious ten-year-old girl who believes the entire world should submit to her every whim.
While en route to a new home, Chihiro and her parents stumble upon a mysterious tunnel, which leads them to a ghostly town. There, the parents greedily devour the buffet in an abandoned restaurant, and unceremoniously turn into pigs as Chihiro looks on. They have unwittingly strayed into the Land of the Spirits, a world inhabited by ancient gods and magical beings who holiday at a giant bathhouse run by the demonic sorceress, Yubaba.
Chihiro finds an ally in the enigmatic Haku, who explains that in order to survive this strange and perilous world, she must make herself useful by working hard at the bathhouse. Chihiro renounces her laziness, her reason, her memories, even her name…
This visionary work from Miyazaki (PRINCESS MONONOKE) is a dreamlike fable and an enchanting fairy tale."

      Sorry we missed each other Geoff - there was only 3 of us in the end, we waited in the bar until about 6.25 then went into the cinema as the seats were unallocated. Hopefully see you next time!

    Marvellously bonkers, dream like, trippy feast.

    A feast for the eyes with impressively crafted animation and surreal adventures which was a joy to watch. Enchanting, intelligent and thoroughly entertaining. I loved it!

      they have probably moved it to the larger screen when it got full. They did that last week.

    • Chris D.

      That's exactly what's happened, it's now in Screen 1, so it's a free for all!

    Hey! I'm quite keen to join for this tonight. Do I just go ahead and book my ticket as normal through the website and find the group when I get there? :)

      Hi Kerry, yes its best to buy your ticket in advance and then RSVP that you are coming along. Mostly for films at the Komedia we meet in the bar for a short while before the film and then go over to the Dorset after for a chat about the film - not a complex analysis!

      While you don't normally need to buy a ticket in advance I know that this series of films have been very popular so there is a good chance that there won't be any left on the door.

      If you have RSVP'd one of us will look out for you - usually there is a loose group of people some of whom you will recognise from our photos - just come and say hello.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
