Makoto Shinkai's new film Your name. has revived interest in the director's oeuvre. If you're hankering to watch (or rewatch) 5 Centimeters Per Second, a poignant tale of two separated lovers with lavishly drawn skies, what better way to do it than under the star-strewn autumn sky in a park in Tokyo?
The Tokyo National Museum, located in Ueno Park, will screen the film outdoors at 7 PM on October 14 and 15 free of charge. Numerous food stalls will be set up nearby to satisfy any snacking cravings. Since a similar outdoor screening of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time in July was a success, the screen will be gigantic and a thousand seats will be provided. Additionally, the museum will stay open until 10 PM to let any curious filmgoers see its exhibit of Buddhist statuary from Shiga Prefecture.
