No Face demon hands Chihiro tokens to use at the spa.

Part of a very special weekend of six classic Miyazaki films. Accompanied by new screen prints in Spoke Art’s ongoing Roxie poster series. Hosted by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks.

10-year-old Chihiro and her parents are riding along during a family outing through the countryside when they stumble across an amusement park that has seemingly been abandoned for years. Despite Chihiro’s premonitions about the creepy setting, her parents explore the area and eventually discover and indulge in an empty eatery filled with fresh food. As a result of their unfaithfulness they are magically turned into pigs, which in turn scares away Chihiro. She meets the enigmatic Haku, who explains to her that this land is actually a magical bath house, a kind of holiday resort, where supernatural beings seek comfort away from the earthly realm and she must work here, as laziness is not permitted, to free both herself and her parents from the mystical land.

Directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Studio Ghibli. Japan. 2001. 125 min. In Japanese with English subtitles. 35mm.

Part of Miyazaki Mania.

Roxie Theater trailers play during the 30 minutes prior to showtime.

We like to ensure that every seat in every theater is taken, so prior to the start of each film we sell the open seats to people who have waited in the standby line.

Standby tickets will be sold to the standby line on a space-available basis, beginning anytime from 15 minutes before the scheduled screening time up until the start of the film. As soon as the number of unoccupied seats has been determined, those tickets will be sold to individuals in the standby line. Standby lines can typically begin forming up to a few hours before the show. There is a limit of one (1) ticket per person. Cash and credit cards are accepted for standby sales.
