Review from Bruce Fisher

8 of the greatest cartoons on the big screen. These movies are mostly unavailable in DVD. Interesting commentary regarding the artists, studios and artistic styles. Recommended foe all ages.

This was an enjoyable event. I love The Alex Theatre. Great selection of the vintage cartoons that I grew up with. I will make it a point to return to 3rd annual screening. Thanks Goldstar!

Description

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.
