Join us for Valentine’s Day: The Aftermath, a specially curated screening of early and rare animated cartoons that are steeped in romantic (and anti-romantic) themes. All shown on real 16mm film, with a real projector. This is a unique opportunity to see generally unavailable and some previously ‘lost’ films.

Curated and presented by early animation historian, archivist, and preservationist, Tommy José Stathes.

Sampling of Directors, cartoon series, and characters that will be shown:
Otto Messmer/Felix the Cat
Max Fleischer/Koko the Clown, Betty Boop, and Popeye
Ub Iwerks/Flip the Frog
Paul Terry/Aesop’s Fables and Farmer Alfalfa
Frank Tashlin/Looney Tunes and Porky Pig

About The Stathes Archives: 

The Stathes archives of early animated films has been nearly two decades in the making. Beginning as a casual effort to find and see early cartoons that were unavailable on home video, the collection has grown to become perhaps one of the largest of its kind. It includes many titles and ‘orphan films’ that are difficult or impossible to access elsewhere, amassed in rare archival 16mm and 35mm prints.

This is an in-person event. Tickets required to attend. All participants must show proof of full vaccination and wear a mask when they are not eating or drinking. Booster doses strongly recommended. To ensure safe social distancing, this event is limited to 50 participants. To learn more about our Safety Protocols please go here.

Members must be logged into their accounts to receive the 10% discount. Please click on “log in” on the upper right hand corner of the screen and type in your credentials, then revisit the event page. The discount will appear after you add the ticket to your cart.
