2nd Annual Greatest Cartoons Ever!

Big Screen Event for the Whole Family

2nd Annual Greatest Cartoons Ever!

The day after Christmas has always been a big day for releasing movies, as many families are looking for something to do after all the presents have been opened and all the parties are over. This year, on December 26th, the Alex Film Society will be presenting our 2nd Annual, family oriented special event that provides a really great alternative to the other pre-packaged Hollywood extravaganzas.

THE GREATEST CARTOONS EVER! showcases some of the very best theatrical cartoons from the movies' Golden Age, featuring iconic characters like Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Popeye, Betty Boop, Donald and Daffy, even the original Superman, projected in 35mm on the big screen at the Alex Theatre.

Animation historian and author, Jerry Beck, and producer, Frank Gladstone, have programmed a hugely entertaining cinematic trip back to a time when animated cartoons were more than an opening act; they were often the most popular part of going to the movies.

General Admission: $15; Seniors/Students/kids $12.50; Alex Film Society members $10 (join at the box office with cash or check and save immediately on admission).

Of course, as with all of the Alex Film Society special events, there will be even more surprises in store!

Tickets on sale August 31, 2011.
