My Neighbor Totoro (U) + Show and Tell introduction

Family Film Club

still from my neighbour totoro

To celebrate the RSC’s new theatre production in the Barbican this Autumn, we’re screening the original film version of the Studio Ghibli classic.

The story of two young girls who move to the countryside and find an ancient magical creature living in their backyard. Visually ravishing and an absolute charmer of a film. And don’t forget to join us in the cinema at 11am for our monthly Show and Tell introduction!

There is another screening of My Neighbour Totoro on Sat 15th Oct at 2.30pm in Cinema 1. Please note, subtitles will not be read aloud at this screening
