OJCA Friday Movie Night

As a response to Hayao Miyazaki announcing "The Wind Rises" as his last film, the OJCA will be holding a small "Miyazaki Appreciation Evening", where we'll be showing "The Castle in the Sky", eating popcorn and showcasing some of his artistic achievements!

The Castle In the Sky is the adventurous story of a young boy and a girl with a magic crystal who must race against pirates and foreign agents in a search for a legendary floating castle.

When? Friday, May 23rd at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30)
Where? The Ottawa Japanese Cultural Centre, 2285 St. Laurent Blvd, Unit B16
Cost? Free for OJCA/OJCC members (please bring your membership card); $5 for non-members
What? A fun and relaxing evening with (new?) friends in our community! Chairs are available for everyone, but we hope you'll bring pillows and blankets to get comfy on the floor!
Popcorn = $1.00; Drinks = $0.50

For questions or more information please contact OJCA Youth Coordinator, Lily Chen, at lilytamikochen@gmail.com.
