Cartoon Carnival #21: Santa’s Surprise
Dec 15, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $10
Tom Stathes has hand-selected a group of weird, wacky, funny and jolly 16mm cartoons from the 1920s thru the 1940s from his personal film archive. These selected shorts will be full of snowmen, ice skating fun, Santa’s surprises and much more that is sure to warm your hearts for the holiday season.
Christmas Show BONUS: Friend and film historian Nelson Hughes has recently rediscovered a series called “Race Night Comedies,” produced for theaters during the 1930s. These short live-action films feature old silent-era comedians racing with numbers on their backs, one of whom wins the race at the end of the film. Theaters gave each customer a ticket with a number, only one of which matches the winning racer’s number in the film. We’ll be showing one of these rare and fun Race Night Comedies and only ONE lucky guest will have a chance to win a prize courtesy of Mr. Hughes! Your Race Night Comedy ticket is automatically included with your show ticket purchase.
There will also be a traditional raffle for TWO chances to win a copy of Tom’s “Winter Cartoon Rarities” DVD
Doors at 7:30pm. Arrive on time for good seats…
Show tickets are $10 at the door. Includes popcorn and a ticket for a chance to win a cool prize during the Race Night Comedy!
