Thursday in NYC: An Illustrated Lecture on UPA

Animation historian Adam Abraham (author of When Magoo Flew: The Rise and Fall of Animation Studio UPA) will be doing a UPA talk and book signing at the New York Public Library’s Lincoln Center branch on Thursday December 6th at 6pm.

The format will be an illustrated lecture on the history of the UPA studio, with a screening of a handful of Columbia shorts (digital projection) and some rare behind-the-scenes footage (including the 50s documentary A Princess for Magoo).
