Join us for the Xmas Holiday edition of the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat-Cereal Cartoon Party! Curated by film programmer, writer and pop culture connoisseur Kier-la Janisse, this 2 1/2-hour trip down memory lane is a tribute to the eye-popping, brain-addling Saturday morning and Christmas season cartoons of yore, complete with a smorgasbord of delicious sugary cereals (and yes, we have non-dairy & gluten-free options too)! The lineup is always a secret, but you’ll see holiday episodes of Saturday morning faves as well as long-lost prime time specials and vintage animated short films – and an all-new lineup of retro commercials and PSAs in between!
