Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro

Tue., Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
,

Hayao Miyazaki's first film as a director was the fast-paced heist film Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro. Titular antihero and natural goofball Arsene Lupin III comes from a long line of thieves; when his latest crime nets him nothing but counterfeit dollars, he decides to find the forger. The search leads him to the small country of Cagliostro, where a forbidding castle hides a beautiful woman and a conspiracy stretching back years. The Castle of Cagliostro has fantastic action, beautiful animation and a delightfully loopy hero — and now it finally gets released in American theaters. Fathom Events presents two screenings of the film, with bonus footage and commentary from legendary animator John Lasseter, at 7 p.m. Thursday and Tuesday (September 14 and 19) at the Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.fathomevents.com). The dubbed version of the film is shown on Thursday and the subtitled version on Tuesday. Tickets are $7.50 to $12. $7.50-$12

Margaret Atwood

Tue., Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
,

The TV adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale has raised writer Margaret Atwood's profile in the public consciousness, but for those in the know, Atwood was already a singular artist. She has written novels, poetry, criticism, short fiction, children's books and libretti. Throughout her writing she advocates for women's rights, animal rights, a better relationship with nature and a more humanistic approach to the world and each other. She's prickly about how her work is classified by others, and about how her homeland — Canada — is viewed by Americans. She's a true original; brilliant, thoughtful and a gifted stylist. Tonight at 7 p.m. Margaret Atwood receives the 2017 St. Louis Literary Award at the Sheldon (3648 Washington Boulevard). Admission is free, but registration is required.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 1

Christopher Boone is discovered next to the corpse of his neighbor's dog and is immediately accused of killing her beloved hound. Christopher professes his innocence, but nobody — neither the dog's owner, Mrs. Shears, nor his father — appears to take what he's telling them into account. Of course, Christopher has trouble understanding emotions and personal interaction; he's a bright young man, especially for a fifteen-year-old, but he just doesn't process people that well. So Christopher sets out to find the real dog-killer, which requires him to comprehend motivation and the many ways people fudge the truth. He's also going to have to go to London, a place that overwhelms him even when he's chaperoned by a responsible adult. This time, he'll go it alone. Simon Stephens won the 2015 Tony Award for his modern mystery The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which is based on the novel by Mark Haddon. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis opens its new season with this unusual coming-of-age story. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (September 8 to October 1) at the Loretto-Hilton Center on Webster University's campus (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $18.50 to $89. $18.50-$89

South Pacific

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 8

If you want to end a season on a high note, it's difficult to beat Rodgers & Hammerstein's >South Pacific. The perennially popular musical has everything: sweeping romance, a pointed lesson about learned prejudice, the loss of innocence and the horrors of war. And we haven't even mentioned the songs yet, which include "There's Nothing Like a Dame" and "Some Enchanted Evening." Stages St. Louis goes brings down the curtain on its 2017 season with the incomparable South Pacific. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (September 8 to October 8) at the Robert G. Reim Theatre at the Kirkwood Community Center (111 South Geyer Road, Kirkwood; www.stagesstlouis.org). Tickets are $47 to $63. $47-$63

A Century of Japanese Prints

Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Jan. 28, 2018

Japan had a long history of woodblock printing (ukiyo-e) that, although now recognized for their artistic qualities, were at the time purely commercial works. That began to change in the mid-nineteenth century, as Japanese artists were exposed to Western printmaking. These early modern artists began the creative print movement, which was motivated by a desire to explore the artistic possibilities of Japan's traditional hand-carved woodblock printing methods. Artists such as Kobayakawa Kiyoshi and Hashiguchi Goyō created portraits of modern Japanese society in prints that are both beautiful works of art and incredible documents of an era. The Saint Louis Art Museum displays a treasure trove of them in the new exhibit, A Century of Japanese Prints. The show opens on Friday, August 11, and remains up through January 28. Admission is free. free admission

New Media Series: Amy Granat

Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Nov. 12

In the nineteenth century the American Dream was tied up in Manifest Destiny. We would spread across the continent from the East to the West on foot, by wagon or train. Once the West was won, the dream changed and became nice home, a fast car and an open road. But what is the American Dream today, when we cover the land from to sea to sea and all frontiers are gone? Amy Granat's Cars, Trees, Houses, Beaches is a silent 16mm film loop of Hawaiian beaches, muscle cars and modernist homes, among them Kirkwood's own Russell and Ruth Goetz Krauss house, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The film ruminates on these conquered frontiers, many of which are once again the stuff of dreams for Americans. The Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org) presents Granat's film as part of its long-running New Media Series. It shows on an endless loop from July 14 to November 12 in gallery 301. Admission is free, and the museum is open every day except Monday. free admission

Howard Jones: Think Rethink

Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Oct. 22

Like many artists, Howard Jones is deeply enamored of his tools. These are the objects that channel the creative vision, after all. But Jones engages with tools beyond merely working with them. He views them as material and media, taking them apart, modifying them and reshaping them into art objects. In Jones' hands a shovel handle sprouts three blades; the handle of a paint brush sprouts a violin neck or an assemblage of pencils; and the legs of a chair curl out in rake heads. His exhibition Howard Jones: Think Rethink features a host of tools that offer an elegant beauty — and sometimes function as well. Think: Rethink opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, August 25, at the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org). The show remains up through October 22, and the gallery is open every day except Monday. free admission

Exposure 19: Jumbled Time

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 2

Gallery 210's long-running Exposure series brings together local artists who work in the same media or pursue the same ideas in their work. In the case of Exposure 19: Jumbled Time, Stan Chisholm, Lizzy Martinez and Adam Turl all share an interest in narrative art, whether that's the sometimes enigmatic phrases Chisholm stamps out on bricks and other building materials, or Turl's set-like assemblages of objects and paint that hint at the personality of their subject. Jumbled Time opens with a free artists' reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, August 26, at Gallery 210 on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-5976). The show remains up through December 2, and the gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. free admission

The Golden Hour

Mondays-Fridays, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 21, 5-7 p.m. Continues through Oct. 27

Art Saint Louis challenged artists to capture the golden hour — that magic time at dawn and dusk when sunlight gives the world a luminous beauty — in the medium of their choice for the gallery's new show. The works selected for the juried exhibit run the gamut. Lorraine Cange photographed a Jewel Box lily pond in black and white, focusing on the pattern of shadows formed on the lily pads. Russell Vanecek captured the glory of a Flad Avenue alley bisected by a bright box of brilliant sunlight. Bob Rickert's abstract photograph of the Palouse hills in Washington State is a model of contrasts, with stark shadows giving way to glowing hilltops. The Golden Hour is at Art Saint Louis (1223 Pine Street; www.artsaintlouis.org). The show continues through October 27, and the gallery is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. There will be a rescheduled closing reception from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, October 21. free admission
