$60 Studio Ghibli Fest series pass gets you in to see 6 Miyazaki masterpieces – plus collectibles

Events, Featured, Movies, Top story

Tickets for Studio Ghibli Fest, the yearlong celebration of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated classics that I reported on here, went on sale April 28. Whether you’re a completist or have never seen any of these anime masterpieces, or you’re just having trouble deciding, there’s a “series pass” option that will let you see them all for $60.

Through either Cinemark or Regal Entertainment Group, though, there’s more to the series passes than just the movies: Cinemark Connections members can unlock an exclusive poster reward with a series pass purchase, and Regal is offering the first 5,000 pass purchasers an exclusive, mounted and decommissioned film cell from the Academy Award-winning Spirited Away.

Studio Ghibli Fest showings, through a partnership with the distributors Fathom Events and GKIDS, will be available in both subtitled (Japanese audio) and English dubbed versions. The lineup:

(Note: All Sunday presentations will be dubbed and shown at 12:55 p.m. local time, while Monday showings will be subtitled and shown at 7 p.m. local time.)

Individual tickets for these titles can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com and gkidstickets.com or at participating theater box offices.

UPDATE: Wednesday screenings have been added for Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. They will take place at 7 p.m. local time and feature the English dubs.
