NOTE! By popular demand, and with participation from distributor GKids, our last screenings of Mary and the Witch’s Flower on Thursday, January 25 will be presented in the film’s celebrated new English dub!
From Academy Award-nominated Hiromasa Yonebayashi – animator on Studio Ghibli masterpieces Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo, and director of When Marnie Was There and The Secret World of Arrietty – comes Mary and the Witch’s Flower!
The new animated gem from GKids, the studio that brought The Frida Ocean Waves, The Prophet, and Boy and the World – comes this dazzling new adventure about a young girl named Mary, a young girl stuck in the country with her great-aunt Charlotte with no friends or adventures in sight. One day she follows a mysterious cat into the nearby forest, where she discovers an old broomstick and the strange Fly-by-Night flower, a rare plant that blossoms only once every seven years and grants magical powers – but only for one night. Together the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and to a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try to set things right.
Based on Mary Stewart’s 1971 classic children’s book “The Little Broomstick,” Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an action-packed film full of jaw-dropping imaginative worlds, ingenious characters, and the simple, heartfelt story of a young girl trying to find a place in the world.
