The official Fathom Events website provided more details about the film.
Inflicted with a deadly curse, the young warrior Ashitaka heads into the forest in search of a cure. There, he meets the enigmatic Princess Mononoke, a young girl raised by wolves, who will stop at nothing to prevent the humans from destroying her home, and the forest spirits and animal gods who live there. This classic story of the conflict between nature and civilization, and what it means to be human, has dazzled audiences for years with its iconic characters, action-packed battle scenes, and sweeping scope.
The English-dubbed cast features the vocal talents of Billy Crudup, Billy Bob Thornton, Minnie Driver, Claire Danes, Jada Pinkett Smith and Gillian Anderson – a considerable volume of talent for an animated feature at that time, and one of the earlier adopters of celebrity voice over talent.
Don’t miss this incredible animated film, from director Hayao Miyazaki and the legendary Studio Ghibli, in cinemas for two-nights only! Two reasons to celebrate! Two nights to join in on the celebration!
