Before they were shrunk down to the kiddie-size stuff seen on Saturday mornings, cartoons were produced for the big screen -- and were every bit the artistic equal of the feature films that succeeded them on the program. Now the Alex Film Society presents the very best animated shorts of the '30s, '40s, '50s and beyond during the fifth annual Greatest Cartoons Ever! Famed animation historian Jerry Beck has curated a timeless "best of the best" program, so that today's audiences can experience animation as it was meant to be enjoyed: brilliantly projected on a movie palace screen. Spend some quality after-Christmas time laughing with Bugs, Daffy, Mickey, Donald, Popeye and more at the gorgeous Alex Theatre.
There will be a presentation from the Alex Film Society 30 minutes before show time.
