The Northampton, Massachusetts Academy of Music is hoping to raise $5,000 with a day-long anime festival this Saturday.

GazetteNET reports that the festival, held at the Academy of Music theater, will feature two films aimed at older children and their parents, and three aimed at teenagers and adults. Sushi and Japanese snack foods will be availiable for members of the audience.

Admission to one feature is $6, $3 for those under 12. Admission to all features is $15.

The first two features, aimed at older children and their families, are the Miyazaki classics Castle of Cagliostro and Princess Mononoke. The films run at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM, respectively.

Beginning at 4:00 P.M. is Cowboy Bebop. Next at 6:30 is Metropolis. Both are suggested for teenagers and older.

The festival draws to a close at 9:00, with the screening of Ghost in the Shell, suggested for adults only.
