Up next in the lineup is Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro, which celebrates its 30th anniversary with screenings on September 30 and October 1 & 3, and AWN is once again teaming up with GKIDS to give away two pairs of tickets to see the all-ages masterpiece to two lucky winners!
My Neighbor Totoro is the story of Satsuki and her sister Mei, who move with their father to a new home in the countryside where they find country life is not as simple as it seems. They soon discover that the house and nearby woods are full of strange and delightful creatures, including a gigantic but gentle forest spirit called Totoro, who can only be seen by children. Totoro and his friends introduce the girls to a series of adventures, including a ride aboard the extraordinary Cat Bus, in a classic tale of magic and adventure for the whole family.
