Toon Tunes with Solomon HaileSelassie
The world of film animation displays great variety in the techniques used to produce the images, and in how those images interact with the sound environment. We will explore four feature-length 35mm films and their music, along with a few classic animated shorts as an appetizer. Children are encouraged to attend the “Family Friendly Toon Tunes” on Saturdays; for those three events the ticket reservation limit has been increased to four to facilitate family attendance.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) 76 min.
Directed by Henry Selick
From the imagination of Tim Burton, The Nightmare Before Christmas offers a seamless marriage of music and animation, with stunning visuals and a soundtrack that hits just the right note of eeriness. The music and lyrics were written by Danny Elfman, who also serves as the singing voice of Jack Skelton. Other vocal talent includes Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara, Paul Reubens and Ken Page.
Additional Ticketing Information
Seating is first-come, first-served for patrons with a reservation. For best seating options, patrons are encouraged to arrive half an hour before the scheduled start of the event. Walkups are encouraged, as additional tickets may be available at the door. At five minutes before the start of the event, all empty seats will be available on a first-come, first served basis to all patrons. For patrons unable to obtain a reservation, we still encourage attendance—while there is no guarantee of seating due to the intimate size of some spaces, patrons are almost always able to be accommodated.
