Cartoon Carnival #11: It’s Christmas Time
LaunchPad (721 Franklin Ave., Brooklyn)
$10, includes a drink
To celebrate the holiday, Tom Stathes digs out some rare, vintage Christmas cartoons for your enjoyment. We’ll be screening more than an hour’s worth of cool animation from the 1920s through 1940s on actual 16mm film with a projector.
By doing this, Tom seeks to keep alive a form of film presentation that is now quickly dying: the projection of real film. Tom is also replicating 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, which you’re sure to enjoy!
$10 at the door, and a nice ‘wintry drink’ is included with the price! Doors at 8pm and the cartoons start a little afterward. Earlier arrival is better if you require seating.
