Fathom Events and GKIDS Present Studio Ghibli Fest 2018
with Porco Rosso in
Select U.S. Cinemas May 20th, 21st and 23rd.
STUDIO GHIBLI FEST, a nine film monthly series of anime classics, continues with Porco Rosso. From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service and manay more, and Academy Award winning director Hayao Miyazaki, comes a dazzling aerial adventure set in the scenic port towns of the Adriatic Sea. This special event will play in movie theaters nationwide for three days only on May 20, 21 and 23.
Porco Rosso is a world weary flying ace-turned-bounty-hunter, whose face has been transformed into a pig by a mysterious spell. When he infuriates a band of sky pirates with his heroics, the pirates hire Curtis, a hotshot American rival, to get rid of him. But with the help of the teenage girl Fio, an aspiring airplane designer, and sultry lounge singer named Gina, Porco takes to the skies for what may be his final high-flying showdown.
Sponsored by Fathom Events, the first showing is Sunday, May 20th at 12:55 p.m. local time (the English-dubbed version), then
Monday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. local time (English-language subtitled) and
Wednesday, May 23rd at 7:00 p.m. local time (English-dubbed) in U.S. theatres.
