(1988) Animated, 124 min. Rated R. D: Katsuhiro Otomo. In a near-future Neo-Tokyo, a young member of a biker gang crashes his motorcycle into a preternatural boy, the product of a secret government experiment involving psychokinesis, and soon exhibits strange powers that he can’t understand or control. Sci-fi mayhem ensues. Otomo adapts his 2,000+ page graphic novel into an epic cyberpunk thriller that's still considered one of the best and most influential Japanese animated films of all time. In Appleton Auditorium.

Studies show that children who listen to or read 1,000 books or more before entering school are better prepared. So grab one of our special reading logs, check out some books and get reading! We’ll have special shows geared toward younger audiences and their families on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. starting March 19!

Coming soon:
