Your Name (PG)

7:00 PM
Doors open at 6:30

A beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. One night, the night the stars fell, they abruptly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint. When a dazzling comet lights up the night sky, something shifts, and they discover a chance to finally meet. But try as they might, something more daunting than distance prevents them. Is the string of fate between Mitsuha and Taki strong enough to bring them together, or will forces outside their control leave them forever separated?
Directed By: Makoto Shinkai
