There’s a holiday weekend coming up – and as usual, I’ll be spending most of it in a darkened theatre – starting tonight!
I’ll start the long weekend by showing vintage 16mm musical films and cartoons to open the Janet Klein show tonight at the Steve Allen Theatre. Tonight’s show is a party to celebrate her new album, Whoopee Hey! Hey!. It’s gonna be good. It starts at 8pm. Tickets: here.
Beginning Friday I’ll spend four days watching 35mm prints of old movies, shorts, cartoons and trailers at the Egyptian Theatre, the home of the annual Cinecon. On Friday afternoon, at 2:30pm in a ballroom adjacent to the dealers rooms in the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel on Highland, I’ll take a break to sign my new book, The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes and show a few 16mm prints.
