The work of Chuck Jones, Max Fleischer, Tex Avery an others Thursday night!

The animated shorts of Chuck Jones, Max Fleischer, Tex Avery and many others will be presented tomorrow night by my favorite dumpster divin’ archivist, Dennis Nyback, heading to Duluth all the ways from Portland, Ore.

Bad Bugs at 7p.m. and Compare to Disney (aka **** Mickey Mouse)  at 9p.m. Bad Bugs is made up of the films W.B. wish were destroyed.  Compare to Disney demonstrates how animators responded to the Disney juggernaut in the 1930s and 1940s. Nyback focuses on three tactics by his competition: Rip him off, beat him to the punch, or make vicious fun of him.. For instance, A Corney Concerto, which pokes fun at Fantasia. All films will be presented in glorious 16mm! For more info and tickets head to: zinema2.com 6bux for one show and 8bux for both. oh yeah and $2 Two-Hearted Zinema 2 222 E Superior St. 722-7300

I really, really wish I could go to this.  I love the Zinema 2 (or as Brad Bennett calls it, the "Zima Theater") and I love animation history. Sorry I'm going to miss this.
