Theater

This month we will be screening a selection of Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies. These cartoon shorts provided a testing ground for Disney animators to experiment and  improve the relatively new art of animation, and many of the early entries in this series proved to be vital in setting the stage for the creation of several of the classic animated features that made Disney such a pioneering and beloved animation studio. Join us in our theater and witness the evolution of Disney animation right before your very eyes.

Runtime: 85 minutes
