Event Type

The Fleischer Bros Cartoons return to the Rosendale Theatre on Friday evening, January 19, 2024. Join us again for a celebration of the legendary Fleischer Studios and enjoy another block of newly restored cartoons featuring Betty Boop, Popeye the Sailor, Koko the Clown and more!

The Rosendale Theatre hosted a Fleischer Bros Cartoon show this year in July to an avid crowd of Betty Boop and Popeye the Sailor Fans. Jack Theakston, one of the cartoon cel restoration experts, was in the theater to discuss the works. The upcoming January show will present different restored cartoons from the Fleischer Brothers oeuvre. These brand new restorations are sourced from the UCLA Film & Television Archives and original film elements from the Paramount Archives.

Stay after the show for a special Q&A with Jack Theakston to learn about the restoration efforts being done to save these wonderful pieces of art. And perhaps Frank and Laurie Caruso can be coaxed up to Rosendale for a winter visit and another vibrant discussion after the films.

This show has everything for the connoisseur of vintage, classic Fleischer art; for the animation maker or enthusiast; and for the eternal youth in all of us.
