Palace Cinema hosts Pop Up Manga

Kristie Yates

Manga fans unite! The Palace Cinemas are currently hosting the Pop-Up Manga Festival which kicked off June 21 and runs until July 27 at Palace Centro.

21410403_c1b2ba235c_oThis mini pop-up fest features a collection of films from Studio Ghibli and caters to families screening English dubbed films on Saturday afternoons, as well as the more adult manga fans with the original, subtitled Japanese versions on Friday nights.

As an enthusiastic admirer of director, animator, screenwriter and all around mastermind Hayao Miyazaki, I went along to the first screening: Howl’s Moving Castle.

Although I’ve seen this incredibly clever film many times before, there is something special about taking the time and losing yourself in the movie theater.

If you haven’t seen any of the following films, but are a fan of Disney, then I encourage you to come along and allow your mind to be blown.

With stunning visuals, unique stories and unforgettable characters, the Pop-Up Managa Festival is a rare treat, ideal for all audiences. After all, you can never be too old for manga.
