  • Film Screening: Spirited Away

    09:30 p.m. - 11:30p.m.

    As part of The Office of First Year Experience's Welcome Week 2016, IU Cinema and the IU School of Global and International Studies are excited to welcome everyone back to campus with a special outdoor screening of Hayao Miyazaki’s 2001 Academy-Award® winning animated film, Spirited Away. Bring your blankets and enjoy this remarkable film under the stars! Wandering through an abandoned carnival site, 10-year-old Chichiro is separated from her parents and stumbles into a dream-like spirit world, where she is put to work in a bathhouse for the gods. Here she encounters a vast menagerie of impossibly inventive characters—shape-shifting phantoms and spirits, some friendly, some less so—and must find the inner strength to outsmart her captors and return to her family. In Japanese with English subtitles. (Digital) Screening will be on the lawn outside of the IU School of Global and International Studies, on the south side of the SGIS building, between the two building wings. Rain location is IU Cinema. Weather updates will be posted on IU Cinema’s social media feeds. Seating for the screening will open at 7:30 p.m., and the film will begin at 9:30 p.m. There will be popcorn available beginning at 8:00 p.m.
