Studio Ghibli film When Marnie Was There (思い出のマーニー ) at Regent Square Theater through June 25.



The 2014 Japanese movie When Marnie Was There (思い出のマーニー ), which opened in Pittsburgh on June 12, will play at Regent Square Theater through June 25. The group summarizes what some believe may be the last Studio Ghibli film:
The newest animated film from Studio Ghibli tells the enchanted story of Anna, a teenage girl who feels disconnected from her peers. Her foster mother frets about Anna’s asthma attacks and sends her to spend the summer with her grandparents in Hokkaido, a sleepy town by the sea. Anna keeps to herself – until she makes friends with the mysterious Marnie, who may or may not be real. Beautifully rendered, the lush, hand-crafted paintings give this modern tale the look and feel of classic animation at its best.
Showtimes are available online; the first screening is Friday at 8:00 pm. The 8:00 pm screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles, but the 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm shows will be dubbed in English. The Regent Square Theater is located at 1035 S. Braddock Ave. (map).
