    • Families and visitors of all ages are invited for a special screening of Jellyfish Eyes, a coming-of-age tale with live action and Murakami-created characters. Masashi, a young boy who moves to the Japanese countryside with his mother, discovers a flying jellyfish-like creature that he befriends and names Kurage-bo. Masashi soon discovers that all of his classmates have similarly magical pets, known as F.R.I.E.N.D.s, which are controlled by electronic devices that the children use to battle one another. Despite their playful appearances, however, these F.R.I.E.N.D.s turn out to be part of a sinister plot that will threaten the entire town that Masashi must bravely overcome.

      Visitors are encouraged to bring along their childhood toys—their F.R.I.E.N.D.s—to take a picture with the Murakami-created characters Kurage-bo and Luxor, who will be present for the screening.
