Part of Studio Ghibli Forever Season

A season of classic animated tales by one of the greatest animation studios around. To coincide with the release of the latest Studio Ghibli title When Marnie Was There we are proud to present a selection of some of the best that the studio have made in their 30 year plus history. Family Friendly ‘Cine Kids’ screenings will be presented in the dubbed versions.

Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata explores one of Japan’s most famous folktales, ‘The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter’, in this enchanting animation. An old bamboo cutter happens upon a tiny girl the size of his thumb. Taking her home to his wife, the couple raise the girl as their own. Her great beauty enthrals all who encounter her, leading the Emperor himself to try and win her heart. But the Princess has no interest as but day by day her desire to return to the world from which she came grows stronger.
