The Hayao Miyazaki classic Spirited Away is coming back to movie theaters in the United States.

Fathom Events is screening the movie in theaters nationwide; It will be shown on December 4 with English dubbing, and the next day, December 5, will see the English subbed version.

Spirited Away is set to celebrate its 15th anniversary, originally released in Japan on July 20, 2001.

“In this animated feature by noted Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, 10-year-old Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi) and her parents (Takashi Naitô, Yasuko Sawaguchi) stumble upon a seemingly abandoned amusement park. After her mother and father are turned into giant pigs, Chihiro meets the mysterious Haku (Miyu Irino), who explains that the park is a resort for supernatural beings who need a break from their time spent in the earthly realm, and that she must work there to free herself and her parents.”
