* Tokyo Godfathers is the latest offering from Llangollen's New Dot Cinema, on Friday December 9.
New Dot Cinema’s latest screening is a moving and unusual take on the Christmas theme.
A classic of Japanese anime, Tokyo Godfathers will be screened on the balcony at Llangollen Town Hall on Friday December 9.
It’s Christmas Eve and three homeless people, Gin, a middle-aged alcoholic, Miyuki, a teenage runaway and Hana, a transsexual former drag queen Hana (Yoshiaki Umegaki) have formed a makeshift family on the streets of Tokyo.
While rummaging in dustbins for food they find an abandoned newborn baby.
With only a handful of clues to the baby's identity, the three misfits try to solve the mystery of the abandoned baby and returning her to her parents.
Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.
Seats are £8 and £6 for concessions. Online ticket sales close 10am on the day of the screening. Tickets available from https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Llangollen/Llangollen-Town-Hall/New-Dot-Cinema---Tokyo-Godfathers/12872848/]
Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts at 8pm.
