Next Saturday in SF: FELIX THE CAT in 35mm

If you are not at the San Diego Comic Con next Saturday, but find yourself in Northern California – here’s where you should dwell: The San Francisco Silent Film Festival. The wonderful all-women Bay Area musical group Toychestra (that’s not them above), is teaming up with pianist Donald Sosin to create the score for a collection of rare silent FELIX THE CAT cartoons. Archival 35mm prints coming from the UCLA Film & Television Archive, Library of Congress, and George Eastman House will be screened. Titles include Felix the Cat in Blunderland, Felix the Cat Weathers the Weather, Felix Loses Out, Jungle Bungles, Eskimotive, Felix Gets Revenge, and Felix Flirts with Fate. The program will be introduced by Leonard Maltin. Tickets are now on sale for Irrepressible Felix the Cat!, co-Presented by The Exploratorium and The Cartoon Art Museum, on Saturday July 14th, at 10:00am. My advice: Do-Not-Miss!
