akira攻殻機動隊When Marnie Was There

The Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville will host an anime series that will run from September 25 to October 1. The lineup includes: Akira (アキラ), Ghost in the Shell (攻殻機動隊), When Marnie Was There (思い出のマーニー), and Perfect Blue (パーフェクトブルー).
Japanese animation (or anime) is a diverse art form which comes in a variety of artistic styles and genres. While the themes of anime vary from sci-fi to horror to action to drama, one thing these films share in common is a focus on creating a cinematographic experience through the use of backgrounds and camera effects. This week we take a look at three Japanese animation classics as well as the most recent (and possibly final) release from Studio Ghibli, whose films include the three highest-grossing anime movies of all time.
Movies will be shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Showtimes and tickets are now available at the theater's website.
