Now in its fourth year, Weinberg Center’s Cartoonfest delights children and animation aficionados alike with an afternoon of vintage sketches and adored characters. Hand-drawn Warner Brothers icons such as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck dance across the big screen in their original, unedited form, grinning like sentient parade balloons as they invite audiences to bask beneath their larger-than-life forms. Hidden among the day’s grove of giggles will also be a lesson in animation history, as many of the festival’s showings stand as a bridge between present-day viewers and revered cartoon creators of the 1930s–60s. While eyes feast on illustrated magic, popcorn, candy, and soda maintain mouth harmony and prevent irritable molars from dropping anvils on unsuspecting tongues.
Weinberg Center for the Arts
When Dan and Alyce Weinberg purchased the Tivoli in the late 1950s, they imagined its ornate chandeliers and sweeping ceilings watching over concerts and performances that would keep the auditorium as full as it was in the theater's 1920s heyday. After a devastating flood in 1976 almost decimated the space, the Weinbergs and other community members restored the historic theater, which now flourishes as a home for live entertainment, films, and the performing arts.
