The Secret World of Arrietty   

Feb 17th - Mar 8th El Capitan

It's your chance to see these films in a theater, some of which have never been in theaters in America. Some of these films are perfect to take the family to or if your an anime enthusiasts enjoy with friends. In either case the films are some of the best animation in the world. Many of the films showing of strong female lead  filled with elements of nature's beauty and flight for which Miyazaki loves to depict and having deeper meanings, except Ponyo, which made little sense, but looked damn amazing.

Do you remember the rap ending to it?
