Cartoon Spooktacular

On Tuesday October 21st I’ll be screening a selection of spooky, kooky, strange and creepy Halloween related animated cartoons at the Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax Avenue in Hollywood. The vintage prints will be in 16mm and 35mm, and I’ll be running some surprises and bringing along some special guests. More details in a post closer to the playdate, but I wanted to give our readers an early heads up.

    “Frankenstein’s Cat, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and Milton the Monster join forces with the groovy ghoulies…”

    Does that mean what I think it means, and are you planning to stay in the room and watch it? Now that’s scary!

  • The Nut Factory

    Personally I think the best cartoons of the 30’s involved supernatural elements in some way or another. By the 40’s spooks became a tad more gentrified in appearance (derbys) but still the cartoons retained an appropriately gothic atmosphere – ‘The Friendly Ghost’ (Casper) & ‘Lulu’s Indoor Outing’ (Little Lulu) are good examples.

    Is this a family-friendly show? I have a four-year-old (he’s telling me to write 4 1/2) cartoon fan.

    Are you going to screen an uncut print of “Jasper and the Haunted House”?
