Alice in Wonderland (1933) Tuesday, August 4th @ 7 PM

Next Screening: Alice in Wonderland (1933) starring Charlotte Henry, W.C. Fields, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant and Edward Everett Horton, directed by Norman McLeod. Never heard of this early and most AliceWonderlandScreeningPRINTfaithful adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s ultra legendary novels? It’s not surprising, because for some weird reason, this masterpiece has been long forgotten by most. Lucky for you CMNYK never lets a classic die. How about W.C. Fields as Humpty Dumpty? How About Gary Cooper as the White Knight? How about Cary Grant as the Mock Turtle? All these treats and about a thousand more, including insane nightmare inducing costumes, special effects way ahead of their time, a gorgeous animated sequence and all the wonderful music your ears can handle. This wouldn’t be the worst screening to bring your kids to, but I’d make sure they know what to expect; you’re going to be on weird dream patrol for the next month.
This CMNYK event is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, August 4th, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM.

The show will be preceded by an intro from CMNYK curator and person who really doesn’t understand electronic dance music, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons and other vintage goodies from 1933 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
