The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.

From director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.

After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

The Young Girls of Rochefort
Sep 23 all-day
The Young Girls of Rochefort

Saturday, Sept. 23

Come join us for Hippodrome Cinema’s next Cocktails & Classics screening – “The Young Girls Of Rochefort.”

“The Young Girls of Rochefort” — Jacques Demy’s follow-up to his 1964 musical “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” — stars real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and the late Françoise Dorléac as twins from the small French town of Rochefort. Giving dance and music lessons to the local children is not enough for the two young women, who both dream of getting out of the small town and finding love and fortune in a big city like Paris.

Taking place over the one weekend that a fair comes to town, the romantic comedy revolves around dreams of the ideal lover and missed encounters. As an American songwriter who becomes enamored with Dorléac’s character, Gene Kelly (whose singing is dubbed) is comfortable with the jazzy and infectious music and choreography.

The film also stars George Chakiris as one of the performers in the fair and Michel Piccoli as the twins’ mother’s lost love.  With smart and humorous lyrics by Demy himself, The Young Girls of Rochefort is an intelligent homage to the American musical tradition from a modern French perspective (look closely for odes to films like An American in Paris and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). In its sunny and ethereal quality, the film constructs a joyous and colorful world seldom seen in the later Hollywood musicals.Join us at the Hippodrome for a catered cocktail reception in the Bar and Art Gallery at 7:30 p.m.  Appetizers will be catered by Dragonfly and themed cocktails will be available. This film will follow the reception in the Cinema at 8:00 p.m.

7:30 p.m. (reception) | The film begins at 8:00 p.m.

Admission is $20 and includes one free specialty cocktail or soda with ticket. Tickets on sale now at the Box Office at 352.375.4477 or online at thehipp.org/cinema.

Directed by: Jacque Demy

Featuring: Gene Kelly, Catherine Deneuve,  Françoise Dorléac
