Relax on a beanbag with your little one and watch some visually stunning short films set to classical music. You’re welcome to stay for as long or as little a time as you like.

Some of the films we’ll be screening include work by Oskar Fischinger, Bruno Bozzetto and others.

Allegro Non Troppo 

Directed by Bruno Bozzetto

Italy’s response to the Disney classical music/animation hybrid “Fantasia,” this film features a series of cartoon shorts set to the likes of Claude Debussy, Joseph-Maurice Ravel and Antonio Vivaldi. The animated segments feature both the humorous and fantastical: an aged satyr attempts to regain its lost youth, a bee is interrupted mid-meal. In between cartoons, a filmmaker (Maurizio Nichetti) struggles to complete the film.
