Friday April 7 – Thursday April 13

Featured Film:

Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name.

The latest film from the master of sentimental anime finally opens here in the US after smashing box office records last fall throughout Asia. Shinkai is a maker of supernaturally gorgeous romances like 2007’s 5 Centimeters per Second and 2013’s The Garden of Words, and the unusually punctuated Your Name. appears to follow in this vein. Based on his own novel, it’s about a pair of teenagers, country girl and city boy, who begin intermittently switching bodies. It’s playing in both English and the original Japanese at various theatres around town, be sure to check the listings to make sure you get the proper version.
