CASTLE IN THE SKY (12:00pm Shows - Feb. 5th-7th: Select a Date) - Studio Ghibli & Miyazaki Month!
January is our annual Studio Ghibli & Miyazaki Movie Month!
These are among the most popular and beautiful animated movies of all time. It's a rare treat to see them on the big screen in a dark theater.
NOTE -- We are showing the English dubbed version of each movie. However, at the final 10:00pm screening of each movie we will show the original Japanese language version that has English subtitles.
CASTLE IN THE SKY SYNOPSIS:
Young orphan Sheeta and her kidnapper, Col. Muska, are flying to a military Pr*son when their plane is attacked by a gang of air pirates led by the matronly Dola. Escaping from a mid-air collision via a magic crystal around her neck, Sheeta meets fellow orphan Pazu and the pair join forces to discover the mystical floating city of Laputa while pursued by both Muska and the pirates, who lust for the city's myriad treasures.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is plenty of parking in front of the building, on each side, and also in a big parking lot behind the building. All parking is free. Asheville Pizza & Brewing on Merrimon Avenue is very easy to find. Only five minutes from I-26, I-240 and Downtown.
Should I arrive early?
ABSOLUTELY!!! We strongly suggest you arrive at least 30 minutes early so you can order food/beverages and get settled into your seat before the movie starts.
Can I order food and beverages inside the theater?
Yes! You can order anything from the diverse menu of Asheville Pizza & Brewing and drink any of Asheville Brewing Company's delicious beers! The menu has pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, vegan options and more! The full menu can be found on our website.
Is there any pre-show entertainment?
Doors usually open one hour prior to the showtime with a pre-show collection of unique and funny videos playing before the movie begins. Regulars to our theater always arrive extra early to enjoy our pre-show which changes with each movie.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Email us at d2VibWFpbCB8IGFzaGV2aWxsZWJyZXdpbmcgISBjb20= if you have any questions. Please do not call our location as the staff who answers will likely not be able to know the answer.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It isn't necessary. After you purchase your ticket we will have your name on a list when you arrive, so we really only need the name the tickets were purchased with. You can also show us the email purchase confirmation on your phone, but you can bring in a printed ticket if you prefer.
Please check in at the ticket counter at least 20 minutes before showtime to find a good seat. We expect a sellout.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Yes, just make sure they check in with whatever name the tickets were purchased under.
