My Neighbour Totoro (U)

Family Film Club

Totoro and children sitting on a branch above a river

A wonderfully gentle fantasy from masterful animator Hayao Miyazaki

When young sisters Satsuki and Mei move to the countryside with their dad, they soon make friends with the furry seven foot ‘Totoro’ who lives in the tree by their house, where their magical journey begins.

This is a perfect introduction to world cinema for littl’uns and a joy for parents alike.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
