Stop Motion at Silent Movie

The next several Saturday nights at the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles will feature a rare festival of vintage stop motion animation films. Tonight (11/15) at 7:30pm is Stop Motion Rareties featuring Starevich, Bowers’ and Svankmajer amongst much odd and unusual. Next week (11/22) at 7:30pm an entire show of George Pal Puppetoons; and on November 29th at 6pm, a fully restored 35mm print of Lou Bunin’s Alice In Wonderland (1949).

And that’s not the only animation event at the Silent Theatre this month. Spend An Evening with Don Hertzfeldt on Sunday November 30th at 7pm.

    The 7pm Don Hertzfeldt has already sold out, but a few tickets are still available for the added screening at 9:30!

    Just a thought, according to the family’s website, Starewitch is the official way to spell the name and the way he himself wrote it, though in promotional material of the 20s and 30s the name is spelled Starevitch. In english, Starevich seems to be more frequent. This is very confusing…

    Screen Novelties will be screening their print “Jasper and the Watermelons”… a beautiful print I might add.

    Wish I was in LA…..that’s a great line-up.

    Bunin’s Alice in Wonderland is fantastic…I’d sure love to see that on film.
