Starts Jan 7th
Select Theaters

Poupelle of Chimney Town is the story of young Lubicchi living among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, yearning to see the “stars” — to know the truth — his father always told him about. One Halloween night he meets Poupelle, a man made of garbage, and together they look to the sky as their adventure begins. Spectacularly beautiful, filled with inspiring performances and splendid music and sound effects, and produced at Tokyo's famed STUDIO4ºC, Poupelle of Chimney Town brings laughter, tears and joy.

From Boogie Nights to The Master to Licorice Pizza to Punch DrunkIn addition to the PTA group show, we're opening a new solo, in conjunction with DKE Toys, for artist Lou Pimentel.
