Howl’s Moving Castle on 35mm (Reel Steel weekender)
The Reel Steel Cult Weekender is a celebration of films which hold a ‘classic’ or ‘cult’ status in cinema.
Taking place Friday March 13th – Sunday March 15th at Sheffield’s historic Abbeydale Picture House – a Grade II listed 1920’s picture palace cinema – bringing the sense of occasion to match some of cinema’s most iconic films.
Howl’s Moving Castle
Our story follows a self-doubting young woman who, following an encounter with a witch, is cursed with an old body. To regain her youth and achieve the confidence she lacks, she embarks on a journey with a young wizard in an enormous walking-city, taking her on a journey through a world of spirits, witches and supernatural beings.
An unforgettable tale of magic and adventure, and listed by many as one of the best films of all time, Howl’s Moving Castle is a dearly loved and critically acclaimed universal classic for all generations from Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki.
