8th ANNUAL FAMILY FESTIVAL
Summer Wars: SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT! (ages 9 & up)
Sunday, November 21 | 3:30 PM
Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) protege Mamoru Hosada’s futuristic film about an 11th grade math genius who agrees to take a summer job in his crush’s hometown of Nagano, Japan. His job is to pretend to be a woman’s fiancé during her family matriarch’s 90th birthday celebration. Meanwhile, his attempt to solve a mathematical equation causes a parallel world's collision with earth. A science-fiction thriller with a sweet-natured extended-family drama at its core, this full length film makes a good argument for close-knit relationships and an awareness of technology’s distortable flaws.
Tickets: $5/person. Purchase on day of show at the theater box office.
