The Wind Rises Animated Film- March 4th

We are getting a group together with the Cincinnati Animation Network to see The Wind Rises by Miyazaki on Tuesday March 4th at 7:15pm at the Esquire Theater. Tuesday is bargain day so the tickets are $6.00 each!  We would love it if you could come too.

In case you don't know, The Wind Rises is Miyazaki's latest (maybe last?) film, and it is also his most controversial film because: 

"Although 'The Wind Rises' has a strong pacifist message, it is essentially a biopic of Jiro Horikoshi, an aeronautical engineer whose contribution to the world was a killing machine. His designs led to the Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter, which was used to devastating effect during World War II." (...says this article from the NY Times)

If you can't make it that day but want to go with someone, email me at cincycan@gmail.com and I can try to build additional groups to go on different days/times. We can send the Esquire the message that we want more films like this in Cincinnati! It is playing Friday the 28th through Thursday March 6th, let me know what other day works for you if you can't do Tuesday.
