Finally, the 2005 Animation Show is coming to Philadelphia. And by Philadelphia I mean the ‘burbs, but you have to take what you can get:
- Monday, November 7th: Doylestown, County Theater
- Wednesday, November 9th: Bryn Mawr
- Thursday, November 10th: Ambler
All shows are at 7 PM, and as far as I know, these theaters are accessible by SEPTA regional rail. The Animation Show is Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt’s continuation of various animated shorts festivals (e.g., Spike and Mike) and is a great way to see everything from “forgotten classics to the very latest in computer animation.” Usually there’s one horrible short, several pretty good pieces, and one or two outstanding pieces that make the trip worthwhile.
UPDATE: The Animation Show was one of last week’s City Paper Screen Picks. Can’t wait until Wednesday night!
