Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival: Holiday Edition at LaunchPad
LaunchPad (721 Franklin Ave., Brooklyn)
We’re oh-so-happy to welcome back cartoon collector extraordinaire Tom Stathes, who will thrill us with some antiquated ‘toon treasures on 16mm in time for Xmas. From Tommy: “To celebrate Christmas 2011, Tom Stathes digs out vintage Christmas cartoons for your enjoyment. We’ll be screening more of an hour’s worth of rare and obscure animation from the 1920s through 1940s on actual 16mm film with a projector. By doing this, Tom is not only keeping alive a form of film presentation that is now quickly dying but also replicates the old semi-professional projected 16mm film screenings which were common in schools, clubs, private homes, and neighborhood cinemas in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Come be a part of our fun and unique holiday experience!
