Pencil This In: Safari Seminar and Disturbing Kiddie Cartoons
DISTURBING KIDS’ CARTOONS
Animation historian Jerry Beck presents “Juvenile Mindrot: Inappropriate and Disturbing Kids' Cartoons” at the Silent Movie Theatre tonight. These cartoons have been deemed too violent, too scary, too depressing and no longer for kids. Beck will bring in cartoons that aren’t shown on TV or on DVD right now. “Originally made for children, these roasters are no longer appropriate for small fry, whether it's because of the violence, cross dressing, smoking, sexism, or just straight-up bizarre ingredients contained within. If your childhood wasn't already perverted by hours upon hours of unhinged animation, this show will make it up to you.” Tickets are $13.
”What’s in a Great Movie Moment” comes to the Egyptian Theatre’s Spielberg room tonight at 7:30 pm. The film aesthetics seminar with Thomas Ethan Harris discusses classic film moments -- like Meg Ryan’s orgasm in When Harry Met Sally; a wire hanger in Mommie Dearest and the Psycho shower scene - and what makes them so great. Both filmmakers and film fans are welcome to the seminar. General admission tickets are $20.
