This screening is presented as part of the See it Big! Animation series at MOMI from November 28 – December 28. From Princess Mononoke to A Town Called Panic, this outstanding series focuses on features that come alive on a big screen. If you haven’t been out to the MOMI yet, this is the perfect time!
