Tea time with Hayao Miyazaki. Spend some time with this master of animation who developed a new wave of animation feature-making with his Studio Ghibli, in our 12/16 7:30 pm screening of the new documentary profile, Hayao Miyazaki: Never-ending Man at the Aero Theatre. #documentary #japaneseanimation #totoro #studioghibli #miyazaki
Double feature tonight 12/15 of Howl’s Moving Castle and Kiki’s Delivery Service- two films directed by Hayao Miyazaki at the Aero Theatre. We know that Howl is a Wizard and haymaker Sophie gets turned into a 90 year old woman, but did you know that Miyazaki pushed strong anti-war themes due to his opposition of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003? The 2004 film also depicts old age positively, and contains feminist elements- as does Kiki’s delivery service, which focuses on a young witch who must believe in herself. 7:30pm at the #aerotheatre

This new documentary about Hayao Miyazaki plays Sunday 12/16 at the #AeroTheatre
. In 2013, film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor, his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. The film even faces the danger of being canceled. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This documentary goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI.
In Japanese with English subtitles.

“What shall we hang — the holly, or each other?” Join us in Christmas Court in the year 1183. Kings may not have hung around until the age of 50 back then, but this film sure endured! It has been regally restored by Rialto Films and this screening features a 4K restoration for the 50th anniversary! Witness Court Intrigue aplenty! King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) argues with his estranged wife, Eleanor (Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn) over whether Prince John (Nigel Terry) or Richard the Lionheart (Anthony Hopkins in his film debut) shall inherit the throne. Complicating matters is King Philip II of France (Timothy Dalton, also his debut) who seeks his own fortune by demanding his half-sister Alais (Jane Merrow), currently Henry’s mistress, be betrothed to Richard. The most royal of the cycle of '60s films dealing with the history and palace intrigues of medieval England. Thursday, December 20 at 7:30 PM at the Aero Theatre. Introduction by author Jeremy Arnold, who will sign his book Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season in the lobby at 6:30 PM. #AeroTheatre #SantaMonica #TurnerClassicMovies #ChristmasMOvies #HolidayMovies #PeterOToole #KatharineHepburn #TimothyDalton #50thanniversary #1960sFilms #CostumeDramas #ChristmasCourt #KingsandQueens #AnthonyHopkins #KingHenryII
Have yourself a merry little Christmas at the #AeroTheatre
this holiday season with some holiday classics hosted by author Jeremy Arnold (Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season). MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944) screens on Saturday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 PM. Judy Garland and Margaret O’Brien perform “Bamboo Tree” in the parlor and then there’s the enduring charm of “The Trolley Song.” Life seems perfect in St. Louis on the brink of the 1904 World’s Fair for the four sisters of a working-class family, until the father reveals they have to leave for New York. Adapted from Sally Benson’s short stories, originally published in The New Yorker, this gem of cinematic, picture-postcard Americana and youthful romance marked the beginning of the golden age of MGM musicals, and the golden age for director Vincente Minnelli as well: He married Judy Garland the following year.
