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.Buy tickets/get more info now
