"Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind" And "Castle In The Sky" Coming To L.A. Theaters

Two of Japanese Director Hayao Miyazaki will be shown at L.A. theaters this month.

The Japanese films "Nausicaä&n bsp;Of The Valley Of The Wind" and "Castle In The Sky" by Hayao Miyazaki will be shown at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 2 and at the American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica on Feb. 10.

["Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind"] is set a thousand years after a nuclear holocaust has gutted the globe. After the death of her father and an attack from the hostile Tormekia, Princess Nausicaa must use her uncanny ability to communicate with the giant crustacean Ohmu to unite her people against the threat of annihilation. Based on the manga of the same name, and using Miyazaki’s distinct stylistic flare for the dreamlike and fantastical, the film also inaugurates Miyazaki’s enduring collaboration and friendship with composer Joe Hisaishi. Its visually breathtaking, truly dexterous animation is more than worthy of a repeat viewing, let alone a first.
On the other hand, "Castle In The Sky" is the tale of:
A young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island in the sky, site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. CASTLE IN THE SKY is an early masterpiece of storytelling and filmmaking whose imaginative and ornately detailed vision presaged later films like PRINCESS MONONOKE and SPIRITED AWAY.
"Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind" and "Castle In The Sky" will be shown one after the other in Japanese with English subtitles. You can already buy your tickets for the showing at the Egyptian Theatre and at the American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre at $11 for general admission and $7 for members. On both dates, the movies start at 7:30 p.m.
