Part of our History of the Midnight Movie series!

Animated shorts of all sorts were regularly part of midnight shows in the 1970s and 1980s. Between double features, preceding cult movies, and in between rock shows, cartoons were featured to keep the captive crowd on a contact high. Frequently, a whole program of campy, crazy, vintage ‘toons would hold forth from midnight till 3am. Cinefamily’s resident animation guru, Jerry Beck, actually curated several midnight cult cartoon fests at New York’s 8th Street Playhouse and Thalia repertory theaters back in the day. He’s consented to collect his favorite selection of groovy ‘toons, some from the golden age, others created by the earliest independent animators of the 60s and 70s, and he will give us some insights as to animation’s role in the history of Midnight movies. The Sunshine Makers, Bambi Meets Godzilla, and The Cobweb Hotel are among the films in this rare set. You don’t need to bring your legally prescribed medical marijuana… these cartoons will get you high on their own…
