After Avalon Atmospheric Theater & Lounge‘s recent Hayao Miyazaki film series—which we called a “slew of stunningly gorgeous, impossibly imaginative, and emotionally complex anime films”—was a resounding success, the Milwaukee theater group is electing to extend its fruitful March into “Anime April,” to screenings at affiliate theater, Times Cinema, with six screenings spread through three weeks. Here are the showings. (Go to Times’ website for individual listings.)

April 8-14
Ghost In The Shell (1995) and The Wind Rises (2013)
