Saturday Morning All You Can Eat Cereal Cartoon Party: XMAS!
The Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Cartoon Party
Saturday, December 17th
10AM to 1PM
Tickets: $15 Adults / $8 Kids (Under 14) / Under 3 free!
Ho ho ho!! It’s the Christmas edition of the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party, curated by film programmer, writer and pop culture connoisseur Kier-La Janisse!
Remember Saturday mornings? Kids today may not realize the significance of the Saturday morning ritual, but once upon a time, we had to wait a whole week to get our cartoon fix, and when we got it, we tended to binge. In that gleefully gluttonous spirit, curator Kier-La Janisse presents a 3-hour trip down memory lane with a tribute to the eye-popping, brain-addling Saturday morning cartoons of yore, complete with a smorgasbord of delicious sugary cereals (and yes, we have non-dairy too!)! You’ll see both faves and obscurities spanning the 40s through the 80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs! The lineup is always a secret, but there will be monsters, sci-fi, sleuths, superheroes and all kinds of 2D silliness, so get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
