POTSDAM -- Cinema 10 presents “The Wind Rises” on April 21 in the Potsdam Roxy Theater, 20 Main St.

In what he declares to be his final animated film, Hayao Miyazaki takes on the story of Jiro Horikoshi, engineer and aviation pioneer, who dreams of airplanes rising on the wind, but who created the Mitsubishi Zero planes, used at Pearl Harbor and for kamikaze missions during World War II.

Unlike Miyazaki’s more child-oriented stories, “The Wind Rises” deals with adult conflicts and choices, but from the perspective of a filmmaker whose hope has always been for a future with no battle planes.

Cinema 10 films are shown on Mondays at 7:15 p.m.

Tickets are $4.50 general admission, $3.50 for students and seniors; season tickets are $35, $25 for students and seniors.
