Cinematheque 2/23-26: Don Hertzfeldt in person, Chaplin’s Gold Rush, Oedipus Rex & more!

Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt appears in person on Friday night!

On Friday night at 7:30 pm the Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt, who created some of the most popular short films ever shown at the Cinematheque (among them “Billy’s Balloon,” “Rejected,” and “Ah, L’Amour”), appears in person with a selection of his funny, twisted, stick-figure-filled cartoons. A Q&A will follow the screening. The film portion of AN EVENING WITH DON HERTZFELDT includes the Cleveland premiere of Hertzfeldt’s latest work, the 23-min. “It’s such a beautiful day,” the third and final part of his “Bill” trilogy. (A character named Bill stars in all three movies.) The other two parts of the trilogy, “Everything will be OK” (2006) and “I am so proud of you” (2008; another Cleveland premiere), also will be shown, along with some earlier movies and a few surprises. All films will show in new 35mm prints! Special admission to this show is $12; members and CIA I.D. holders $9; ages 25 & under $7 (with proof of age). No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored. $12 & $9 tickets are available in advance here. $7 tickets will go on sale Friday night starting at 6:30 pm to those who present an I.D. with date of birth.
