Pinocchio U

Inventor Gepetto creates a wooden marionette called Pinocchio. His wish that Pinocchio be a real boy is unexpectedly granted by a fairy.

The director of 1997 record-breaker Princess Mononoke brings you Spirited Away, a quixotic, visually captivating adventure, which follows Chihiro (Daveigh Chase, Lilo & Stitch), and her parents en route to a new home in the suburbs. When they take a wrong turn and stumble into a strange tunnel, they are transported to a vibrant world in an abandoned amusement park.  But, on the quest to save her parents, and even her own identity, Chihiro soon learns that nothing is really as it seems...

While working in her late father’s hat shop, Sophie meets Howl, an eccentric, flamboyant wizard, who lives in a legged home which can move at its own will.  Overcome with jealousy, the Witch of the Waste casts an ageing spell on Sophie. So she finds Shelter in Howl’s moving house and befriends Calcifer, a subdued fire demon, and Markl, the protector of a four-way door which transports people into other lands and dimensions. Together, they must fight to reverse the witch’s curse.  

Boxtrolls PG

Laika, the creators of ParaNorman and Coraline, bring you this wonderful animated little gem about a community of playful, quirky creatures called the Boxtrolls.  They live under the streets of Cheesebridge with Eggs (Hempstead-Wright), an orphaned human boy who they kindly adopted- that is, until the evil Archibald Snatcher (Kingsley) conjures up a diabolical plan to get rid of all the Boxtrolls! Eggs must venture above ground to perform a mission to save them before it’s too late...
