TODAY in Glendale: “The Greatest Cartoons Ever” on the BIG screen!

Yeah, you’ve seen ’em before – but not like this! If you are in SoCal with nuthin’ to do the day after Christmas, The Alex Film Society is running these classic cartoons – 35mm studio vault prints – in what they hope will be the first in an annual tradition: The Cartoon Hall Of Fame.

This afternoon at 2pm and repeated at 7pm, the program includes Warner Bros. The Rabbit of Seville (Bugs & Elmer), One Froggy Evening (Michigan J. Frog), and Duck Dodgers in the 24th and a half Century (Daffy & Porky), Disney’s The Band Concert (Mickey Mouse), and the Silly Symphony, Three Little Pigs, and Max Fleischer’s Snow White (Betty Boop), Mechanical Monsters (Superman) and a brand new restored print of Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor – all projected as they were meant to be seen, on the big screen. On-line tickets are available now for two shows, at 2pm and 7pm, and will also be available at the door – at the historic Alex Theatre, 216 North Brand Blvd. in Glendale. See you there.

    Though fine so far as it went, the selection did seem a bit skimpy. How can you miss an opportunity to follow “The Three Little Pigs” with “Blitz Wolf”? Particularly when it’s supposed to be the Greatest Cartoons of All Time?
