Young Sheeta and Pazu must prevent a precious crystal from falling into the hands of an unscrupulous government agent and a gang of sky pirates. This ‘levistone’ may have the power to transport its bearer to the legendary floating city of Laputa and its reputed treasures. Ghibli’s first film, a thrilling adventure set in an alternative 19th century, displayed a high quality anime style that set the benchmark for the films to follow.
The screenings on Sunday 8 May 11:45 (including a Funday) and Sunday 14 May 11:30 are family screenings.
