It has been there before and it’s back again, but it’s Studio Ghibli so who is going to complain? The Retrospective last had a stopover in Nashville, TN, in June 2012 – I blogged about it – and now returns to the Belcourt with a whole bunch of Saturday screenings for children.

Since this Ghibli season at the cinema is specifically aimed at kids, it means all the screenings are dubbed, including those with more serious topics that are not for a super-young audience (Mononoke HimeHauru no Ugoku).

I’m not a fan of dubbing myself (as I’m sure everyone knows by now), but I guess this your chance to brainwash your children to become die-hard Studio Ghibli fans and abandon Disney & Co. forever. *evil grin*
