Grave of the Fireflies is a sombre drama about two young siblings trying to survive on the streets of Tokyo in the aftermath of the Second World War after being separated from their parents. My Neighbour Totoro tells the story of two sisters who move to a remote cabin and go on adventures with the local tree spirits.

Bernstein and the Movies

Chichester Cinema, New Park Road, Chichester

Thursday-Sunday August 9-26

As part of the Bernstein In Chichester Festival marking the centenary of the birth of the composer Leonard Bernstein, West Side Story, On The Waterfront and On The Town will be screened during the 27th Chichester International Film Festival. Leonard Bernstein wrote the score for West Side Story (1961), which was rated by the American Film Institute as one of the best two musicals ever made. He also wrote the score for the 1954 Elia Kazan movie On The Waterfront, which dared to speak with a bold and identifiable musical voice and for which he was nominated for an Oscar. On The Town retained four songs composed by Bernstein from the original 1944 stage musical. There will also be two illustrated talks: Bernstein at the Movies and Leonard Bernstein: Broadcaster and Lecturer.
