College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet -- and fall for each other -- over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family's deportation just as fiercely as she's fighting her growing feelings for Daniel. PG-13, 2 hours. Light refreshments will be served.

Cocona is a smart, but aimless and unmotivated middle school girl whose greatest concern is being unable to decide what her goals are in life ... then her world is turned upside down by the arrival of an overenthusiastic and overfamiliar redhead named Papika, who takes her on an adventure in a kaleidoscopic parallel universe called Pure Illusion, where they find magical shards that enable them to transform into superpowered magical girls. However, they aren't alone: not only are these worlds occupied by beings (both benign and malignant), but they aren't the only ones seeking these shards, and Cocona and Papika are caught up in a race against time, all the while trying to sort out their lives and their newfound feelings for each other.

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Refreshments served at each meeting.
