The 1986 Hayao Miyazaki film Castle in the Sky (天空の城ラピュタ) will play in Pittsburgh on November 18, 19, and 20 as the final installment of this year's GKIDS Studio Ghibli Fest.
This high-flying adventure begins when Pazu, an engineer’s apprentice, spies a young girl, Sheeta, floating down from the sky, held aloft by a glowing pendant. Both Sheeta and Pazu are searching for the legendary floating castle, Laputa, and they vow to travel there together to unravel the mystery of the luminous crystal. But their quest won’t be easy, as soon they are being pursued by greedy air pirates, the military, and secret government agents, who all seek the power Sheeta alone can control.
The movie will play at the Southside Works Cinemas and at Pittsburgh-area Cinemark theaters in Monroeville, Monaca, North Hills, Pittsburgh Mills, and Robinson. The November 18 and 20 shows will be dubbed in English while the November 19 screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles. Tickets are available online.
