Gene Deitch in LA July 6th

An early heads up on my next CineFamily/Silent Movie Theatre screening next month. Animation director, cartoonist, creator of Tom Terrific and father of Kim and Simon (pictured above), Gene Deitch will join us in person for a screening of rareties from Terrytoons, UPA, his commercials, his award winning short films – and yes, we’ll have him explain his Popeye, Krazy Kat and Tom & Jerry cartoons.

As you know Deitch lives in Prague, Czech Republic, and rarely visits L.A. — so don’t miss this rare one-of-a-kind evening of amazing animation with a living legend. More details when I post about this again later this month. Yes, you can reserve tickets now. If you live in L.A. you should not miss this show.
