Cartoon Carnival: Shopaholics
Cartoon Carnival #101: Shopaholics
The City Reliquary
370 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211, USA
It’s time for another big batch of 16mm (no digital!) animated cartoons from the 1920s through the 1950s, straight from the Tommy José Stathes Archives—on the City Reliquary’s backyard silver screen!
For our 101st Cartoon Carnival program we’re featuring something fun and different; a first for our series: commerce, retail, and shopping-themed cartoons. Shop ’til you drop—vicariously—through some classic characters like Betty Boop, Popeye, Little Lulu, Heckle & Jeckle, and others!
Be sure to bring all your family and friends out to see these classic and now-rare cartoons the way they were meant to be seen—projected on ‘reel’ film, and enjoyed with a physical audience.
As this installment will be shopping themed, we’ll also have a small tag sale of cartoony items in order to raise some extra funds for film archiving costs. You’ll find all sorts of fun and vintage goodies available for your own collections, or to give as gifts! And, as part of our opening Half-Happy Hour, the Reliquary will have bar refreshments available. You may bring your own food to this event, but please support the venue for all drinks consumed on the premises. Bar is *cash only.*
