THE AERO THEATRE TURNS 75
75th Anniversary Celebration! 1940s Night!
FANTASIA
With the American Cinematheque's 10-year anniversary at the Aero coinciding with the theater’s 75th, we’ll be celebrating with special programs all year long. We kick off the commemoration of our 75/10 this weekend!

To celebrate the Aero's 75th, we flash back to 1940 (the year the Aero was born!) with popcorn in vintage bags (at vintage prices!), nostalgic candy, and retro photo opportunities in the Aero's ticket booth!

Rare Theatrical Screening!

FANTASIA
1940, Disney, 125 min, USA,

One of the greatest animated films ever made! What was intended as Mickey Mouse’s comeback short grew in scope and ambition to become Walt Disney’s third feature, a collection of eight segments introduced by music critic Deems Taylor and set to classical pieces conducted by Leopold Stokowski. Choreographed to the strains of Stravinsky, Beethoven, Ponchielli and others, FANTASIA’s dancing mushrooms and hippos, Bald Mountain demons and sorcerer’s apprentice are among the most iconic images in cinema history.


Screening format: DCP | Ticket prices: $30 advance; $40 at the door (if still available). Proceeds benefit the Aero Theatre’s programming, upgrades and renovations. No vouchers accepted for this or any other specially-priced program.
