Wasn't your "first movie" the Friday Roadshow? Friday Road Show" has been connecting us with "movies" since the Showa and Heisei eras. It was a time when we were able to encounter great movies regardless of the year of release. It was a time when we first encountered a world we did not know. The year 1985, when the show began, was also the year that Studio Ghibli opened its studio.

This exhibition takes 1985 as its starting point, tracing the history of "Friday Road Show" and introducing the charm of Studio Ghibli's works.

What kind of exhibition? (1) The fascination of Ghibli's works in each era

The database traces the history of "Friday Night Live" and Ghibli!

The "Friday Road Show" has aired Studio Ghibli films over 200 times. The history of the show has been, and continues to be, marked by the establishment of Studio Ghibli's popularity and the steadfast reputation of its works. The year 1985 was the year Studio Ghibli "opened its studio" and NTV first broadcast "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" as a special program. This exhibition takes 1985 as its starting point, looking back at the year Studio Ghibli's films were released and the year they were first broadcast on "Friday Road Show" to reveal the timelessness and universality of the films through memories and records.

Storyboards of almost all the films from "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" to "Arya and the Witch" will be exhibited.

A storyboard is a blueprint, so to speak, of a film. It is a frame-by-frame representation of the flow of a scene, allowing visitors to grasp the scene structure, dialogues, and other aspects of the production. This is a valuable opportunity to see the process of creating a film.

A fantastic space filled with sound and light.

A "phantom lantern" is a device that shines a strong light on a film or a modeling object and projects an enlarged image onto a curtain or other object using a lens to make it appear. The Toyama Glass Art Institute, Toyama Glass Studio, and local artists in the glass town of Toyama were in charge of its production, which was supervised by Studio Ghibli.

By illuminating the glass with character motifs, visitors can experience the world of the movie while being enveloped in sound and light.
