Jerry’s Event Round-Up

I now have three (count ’em, three) regularly scheduled live events in Hollywood California. If you can’t make it this month, please print this post and stick it on your refrigerator, or jot these down for future reference. I’ll be there every month:

Cartoon Dump – Every fourth Tuesday of every month. TV’s Frank, puppets, funny songs and really bad cartoons. At the Steve Allen Theatre. Next up: tomorrow night August 25th at 8pm. Special guest comedian Rick Overton.

Cartoozdays at the Silent Movie – First Tuesday of every month. Different theme each month. This month: “Technicolor Tuesday” – a whole program of classic Hollywood cartoons in 35mm IB Tech. September 1st at 8pm.

Janet Klein – First Thursday of every month. Janet and her Parlor Boys play 20s, 30s jazz and pop tunes. Preceeded by me and my 16mm projector, with rare musical shorts and cartoons of the 1930s. Next show, September 3rd, 8pm at the Steve Allen.

  • A friend from out of town here to attend Comic Con had me join him to see Klein and the Parlor Boys at the 20s festival held each year at Homestead Museum in city of Industry (inland from L.A., on the way to Riverside etc.). WOW! What a performer. A true gem. Even being outside in hot muggy summer it was a treat to hear such lovely music.

    This sounds just too cool! Maybe especially the last of the events – gotta love the jazz music in the classic toons of the 30s and 40s! Too bad I live in Norway…

  • Any ideas what films you are planning on showing?
