Midpen Movie Night: “Talkartoons” Animation History


This month’s Midpen Movie Night is a special showcase of rubber hose animation made in the early 1930s! Join us for an hour’s worth of curated selections from the Fleischer Studio classic “Talkartoons” series – best known for the character Betty Boop. Featuring absurd, experimental, and entertainingly strange animated shorts such as “Bimbo’s Initiation” (1931), “Swing You Sinners” (1930), and “Poor Cinderella” (1934). Screening THIS FRIDAY, April 30th, at 8PM!

Midpen Movie Nights are a FREE monthly online movie screening event. While the film screens live on our Facebook Page and Local Channel 30, we host a voice-only ZOOM chat in which viewers can discuss, analyze, and react to our feature films. The text chat will be open for those who prefer to keep their mics off. Donations through our Facebook Fundraiser are encouraged.
