Studio Ghibli Fest 2018 - Porco Rosso

May 20, 21 and 23

Studio Ghibli and Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki’s aerial adventure, PORCO ROSSO, flies into theaters for a special three-day only event! Watch PORCO ROSSO on May 20, 21, & 23 during Ghibli Fest 2018.

From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, and Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, comes a dazzling aerial adventure set in and above the scenic port towns of the Adriatic Sea. Porco Rosso is a world weary flying ace-turned-bounty-hunter, whose face has been transformed into that of a pig by a mysterious spell. When he infuriates a band of sky pirates with his heroics, the pirates hire Curtis, a hotshot American rival, to get rid of him. But with the help of the teenage girl Fio, an aspiring airplane designer, and sultry lounge singer named Gina, Porco takes to the skies for what may be his final high-flying showdown.

Studio Ghibli Fest is a nine month celebration that brings one beloved Ghibli film back to theaters per month for 3 days each, providing a rare opportunity for audiences to experience these films on the big screen.

Each film will screen in its English language dub on a Sunday matinee, followed by a Monday night screening in Japanese with English subtitles, and a Wednesday night screening of its English language dub. There are a number of theaters in the Boston area that will be playing the film. Click the link above to find one near you!
