Early in January 2017, Fathom Events will offer two nationwide screenings of PRINCESS MONONOKE, the 1997 anime masterpiece from directory Hayao Miyazaki, about a young man who leaves his village to track down the origin of the monster that infected him with a curse. This is one of the great achievements in animation – an action-packed, densely plotted epic worth seeing on the big screen.
On Thursday, January 5, the Japanese-language version will screen with subtitles; on Monday, January 9, the English-dubbed version will screen. Both versions will appear on screens nationwide at 7pm local time. Los Angeles area theatres include the Citywalk 18, LA LIVE 14, and Alhambra Renaissance 14.
The presentations are in honor the film’s 20th anniversary and in honor of director Miyazaki’s birthday.
The film’s English-dubbed version was scripted by fantasy author Neil Gaiman, with vocal performances by Billy Crudup, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Gillian Anderson, Billy Bob Thornton, and Keith David.
