Spotlight onFrom Up On Poppy Hill” 

Set in Yokohama in 1963, as Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the Olympics, the beautifully animated From Up on Poppy Hill tells the story of a high school couple’s innocent love and the secret surrounding their births.

The film evokes both a wide-eyed hope for the future, and an aching nostalgia for a past that can never be recovered.

Written by Academy Award Winner and the legendary founder of Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki, and directed by Goro Miyazaki, the film marks the first creative collaboration between father and son.

This English language version features the voices of Christina Hendricks, Anton Yelchin, Gillian Anderson, Beau Bridges, Jamie Lee Curtis and Bruce Dern.

Thank you for joining us for Monday’s our Audience Choice film “The Wizard of Oz“!

Our residents selected this film as the one they most wanted us to screen – and we had trivia games with prizes –  and more – at our pre-movie presentation by Marc Baum of the All Things Oz Museum.

Then we watched the film on our scenic plaza.
