I may or may not be planning my trip to visit family in New Jersey this year around this festival...
The film center, East Village Cinema (map) will be hosting 4 Studio Ghibli films on the big screen each weekend in August!
I wish they were playing Kiki or Totoro, but I'll take Howl any day!
10-year-old Chihiro and her parents stumble upon a seemingly abandoned amusement park. After her mother and father are turned into giant pigs, Chihiro meets the mysterious Haku, who explains that the park is a resort for supernatural beings who need a break from their time spent in the earthly realm, and that she must work there to free herself and her parents. - Wiki ;)
