Weekend Matinee

The HFA continues its specially priced screenings of films for children, teenagers and their families. Many from the Harvard Film Archive collection, this series of classic and contemporary films are screened in their original formats and languages. This season features an all-anime matinee focused on the work of Mamoru Hosoda—in all of its hand-drawn beauty—and two of Hayao Miyazaki’s earlier features, including the masterful epic Nausicaä, his first film with longtime collaborator, composer Joe Hisaishi.

All Weekend Matinee screenings are admission-free for holders of a valid Cambridge Public Library card!
