Every so often, El Segundo’s treasure of a revival theater, the Old Town Music Hall, will do a run of classic cartoons with their occasional Vintage Cartoon Festival.
This particular edition is fascinating as it’ll feature Pre-Code (an era of film that got away with being more graphic and explicit because the big Hollywood studios had not really enforced any sort of obscenity code yet) cartoons. All of these cartoons definitely came well before the adult animation of BoJack Horseman or F Is For Family or Rick and Morty and it ought to be fascinating to think the connection between those Pre-Code cartoons and our aforementioned modern ones.
Also, renowned cartoon historian Jerry Beck will be hosting the entire evening.
This Vintage Cartoon Festival will happen:
Aug. 16th, Friday 8:15PM
Aug. 17th, Saturday 2:30PM & 8:15PM
Aug. 18th, Sunday 2:30PM
Tickets are $10 at the door ($8 for senior 62+). Get more info here!
