We are excited to partner with Funimation Films to bring our audiences two opportunities to experience director Mamoru Oshii's original animated 1995 epic GHOST IN THE SHELL prior to the April release of its 2017 remake! Join us Tuesday, February 7 at 7:30pm for the film in its original Japanese language, with English subtitles; and Wednesday, February 8 at 7:30pm as we present the film in an English dub.
Set against eye-popping city and cyber landscapes, Ghost in the Shell weaves the epic story of cyborg federal agent Maj. Motoko Kusanagi, who is hot on the trail of the mysterious villain The Puppet Master, who illegally hacks into the computerized minds of cyborg-human hybrids. Her pursuit of a man who can modify the identity of strangers leaves Motoko pondering her own genetic makeup and humanity, and what life might be like if she had more human traits. With her partner, she corners the hacker - but her curiosity about her identity sends the case in an unforeseen direction.Find out more »
Director Stephen Daldry's THE HOURS was adapted from Michael Cunningham's novel of the same title. The film features three women of different generations living vastly different lives, all connected by Virginia Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway: a struggling 1950s housewife (Julianne Moore), Woolf herself (Nicole Kidman, in her Oscar-winning performacne), and a contemporary New Yorker living a life oddly similar to that of Dalloway herself, thus earning the nickname of "Mrs. Dalloway" (Meryl Streep). The film, with brief exception, follows each of these women through the events of a single day, twisting their stories into an elegant and powerful braid.Find out more »
