From Up On Poppy Hill

A meet to see the new Studio Ghibli anime 'From Up on Poppy Hill', about a group of teenagers trying to save their school from demolition before the Tokyo Olympics, though the plot of these films is generally less important than the visuals and human story.

It'll be showing at the Curzon Soho at 6.35 this Saturday, so we'll meet near the downstairs bar from 6. We'll probably stay in the Curzon bar for a drink after. As this is opening weekend and the film isn't showing many places it may sell out so please click on the Curzon link above if you're sure you're coming and want to make sure you get a seat.

Hope to see you there!

    This was the first time I'd seen anything from Studio Ghibli and I was really impressed. The story didn't fully grab me but the characters were lovely and the animation and visuals were just superb.

    I'm not sure I'll be able to make this early evening screening. Hence I have changed my RSVP. I will still try to come along though.

    Just as a quick aside. Film 4 (Freeview) are running a 'Spirit of Studio Ghibli' season between the 1st & 9th August. Though rather frustratingly, for those without digital recorders, most of the screenings are at 11am. See the link below for more details:
