Old Brew


In addition to the previously noted JOHN K. extravaganza on September 7th & 8th (which I will update further in the weeks ahead), the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood has added a few other animation screenings to their monthly schedule.fritzOn Sunday August 15th at 6pm, the Cinematheque will screen the original French version of La Planete Sauvage (aka FANTASTIC PLANET) as a tribute to its late director Rene Laloux.On Friday September 10th, a new 35mm print of Bakshi’s FRITZ THE CAT will screen around 11:30pm (it’s the second half of a double bill with Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls starting at 9:45pm).Also keep in mind that CINECON will take over the Egyptian from September 2-5 with marathon screenings (9am to midnight) of vault prints and fresh restorations of the most obscure movies in Hollywood history (including cartoons – and your last chance to see POPEYE MEETS SINDBAD with the original titles). I’ll be posting more details about CINECON in a few weeks. Till then check the Cinematheque website for more information.
