Laputa: Castle in the Sky (Studio Ghibli)

A Japanese animation adventure movie from the celebrated production house Studio Ghibli

Fleeing a kidnap attempt in mid-air, a young girl falls from the sky, but is saved by a mysterious force. The girl, Sheeta, is discovered by a young boy, Pazu, from a nearby mining community. The secret that saved Sheeta’s life is pursued by the army, the government and a haphazard gang of sky pirates, forcing Pazu to leave his hometown and help Sheeta on a quest to uncover not only the truth about her past, but also the mystery that surrounds a legendary lost city in the clouds.

Foregrounding director Hayao Miyazaki’s love of flying machines, the film unfolds with an ‘Indiana Jones’ sensibility for action, adventure and comedy whilst creating a world that successfully combines historical motifs with imaginative flights of fancy.

Gabriel organised an outing to see Studio Ghibli’s latest film, From Up on Poppy Hill, last August, and it was generally very well received. Here’s a chance to catch (along with Princess Mononoke - showing the following week) arguably the Studio’s two most impressive films.

The film currently has a rating of 8.1 out of 10 from over 57,000 votes on the Internet Movie Database.

It's in its original Japanese language version, with English subtitles.

Tickets are £7.50 (or £5 to Prince Charles Members) and can be bought (HERE)
