Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival
December 5; 7:30pm | Free

Tom Stathes visits Nitehawk once a month now to share his collection of 16mm cartoon shorts, projecting them from his personal 16mm Magic Light Machine in Nitehawk’s cafe. For the Carnival this month, Tom — a self-described “Cartoon Cryptozoologist” — dug up a selection of holiday toons from the 1920s to the 40’s starring a cavalcade of (scary) snowmen, (scary) ice skating, (scary) Santa’s and more. The point I am trying to make is that these old cartoons freak me out.
