Oscar-winning anime Spirited Away returns to the big screen

Pathfinder Infinite

As previously reported here, Studio Ghibli Fest is back for a return engagement in select theaters this year, offering a chance to catch some of the more obscure and fantastical creations to come out of Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki’s operation on the big screen — as they were meant to be seen.

2001’s Academy Award-winning Spirited Away returns to the big screen Oct. 28-30. Its English version includes performances from Suzanne Pleshette, Daveigh Chase, David Ogden Stiers and Michael Chiklis.

Chihiro’s family is moving to a new house, but when they stop on the way to explore an abandoned village, her parents undergo a mysterious transformation and Chihiro is whisked into a world of fantastical spirits ruled over by the sorceress Yubaba. Put to work in a magical bathhouse for spirits and demons, Chihiro must use all her wits to survive in this strange new place, find a way to free her parents and return to the normal world. Overflowing with imaginative creatures and thrilling storytelling, Spirited Away became a worldwide smash hit, and is one the most critically acclaimed films of all time.

The Sunday and Wednesday screenings will be dubbed in English, while the Monday showing is in the original Japanese presented with English subtitles.

Spirited Away is also, of course, available on Blu-ray/DVD.

If you act before Oct. 3, you might also still be able to catch My Neighbor Totoro in cinemas to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
