Spirited Away is coming back to theaters.

Tickets are on sale now for master director Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award-winning adventure, Spirited Away, which returns to theaters in April for 5 nights of screenings nationwide. Coming off the blockbuster theatrical release, and triumphant Oscar win for the director’s latest feature, The Boy and the Heron, GKIDS and Fathom are thrilled to kick off the 2024 edition of Studio Ghibli Fest with the celebrated filmmaker’s previous Academy Award-winning feature. Spirited Away and The Boy and the Heron remain the only two hand-drawn films to win in the history of this category, which was established by the Academy in 2002.

The film will be shown in both original Japanese and English dubbed versions. In addition to the full feature, screenings will include a special look behind the scenes at the construction of the Studio Ghibli Park in Nagoya, Japan.
