Cinefamily’s Halloween “Spook-tacular” – Animation Scoop

Cinefamily’s Halloween “Spook-tacular”

My annual Halloween “Spook-tacular” screening and party is on in Los Angeles next week – on Halloween – and you’re all invited!

Yes, that’s right. While everyone else is “trick-or-treating” all over town, I’ll be screening Halloween cartoons on the big screen – with rare film prints AND digital restorations from the “vaults”. I cannot reveal what I’m showing for various legal reasons – but if you are all partied out, filled with candy and just need to “chill”

Join me at The Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax in Hollywood, California, on Monday October 31st, Halloween, at 7:30. More details and advance tickets on sale here.

The program will include rare prints of classic Hollywood ‘spooky-toons’ – including obscure characters of the black & white era like Flip The Frog and Toby The Pup – and color prints that range in quality from ghoulishly garish Technicolor to awful ancient blood red. Be prepared, foolish mortals!

    The bearded, sword-wielding villain in the wax museum cartoon looks kind of like George W. Geezil!
