Spirited Away – June 28 & 29*

Ponyo – July 5 & 6*

Whisper of the Heart – July 12 & 13*

Process Mononoke – July 19 & 20*

The Cat Returns – July 27 & 27*

Howl’s Moving Castle – August 3 & 4*

My Neighbor Totoro – August 16 & 17*

When Marnie Was There – August 23 & 24*

Kiki’s Delivery Service – August 30 & 31*

*In a neat attempt to accommodate fans, including kids and others who prefer not to try and read rapid subtitles, the Wednesday evening screenings will be shown in Japanese with subtitles in English, whereas the Thursday morning screenings will have all dialog dubbed into English.

All ticket prices are regular admission. The Tower Theatre is located at 2508 Land Park Drive, Sacramento. For more information about each film and to purchase tickets, visit readingcinemasus.com/tower.
