A brand new independent film festival.
JOHN K. PRESENTS A KIDDIE MATINEE shows from 1:00 - 2:30 PM at the historic Orpheum Theater in downtown Flagstaff, Arizona.
I suggested this event because I remembered that when I was a kid, they used to have Saturday matinees with old cartoons, comedy shorts and dinosaur movies. I figured that a lot of modern kids don't get to see this kind of stuff - especially all in one showing, so this is good old fashioned family entertainment - with lots of explosions, frying pans over the head and slapstick wackiness! Parents will love it too!
Afterwards stick around for a meet and greet, and get a caricature ($10 for kids; $20 for adults).
Saturday Evening 7:00: JOHN K. RETROSPECTIVE a more adult-oriented program at 7:00 PM also at the Orpheum Theater. Lots of rare Spumco cartoons and crazy stuff.
After the show concludes there will be another chance to get a caricature, and chat with me about the films. Kali will be there too so make her draw for you.
There will also be a FREE outdoor show Sunday night with fun and cartoons and mingling with the filmmakers and Hoi Polloi.
Tickets available online! It's $10 per show. Although you can buy a pass for the full week of film and shows for $99.
