Snow White's 75th Anniversary Hollywood Screening

Recently, it was announced that the TCM (Turner Classic Movies) Classic Film Festival along with the D23 Disney Fan Club will present a 75th anniversary big screen showing of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The public screening will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday April 14, 2012 at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

In addition, on the day before, legendary actor Kirk Douglas will be on hand at the theatre for the first public screening of the newly restored 1954 Disney film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. That will be Friday April 13th at 2:45 pm.

The four-day festival runs April 12-15 and will play a wide variety of motion picture gems as they were originally meant to be seen--on the big screen, in some of the world's most iconic venues, with the people who made them. For the classic film lover, this looks to be quite the prodigious weekend.

Marge Champion (pictured on stage with Leonard Maltin) received "a huge applause and standing ovation" at the screening.

  1. I want to go to this so badly!!!

  2. I'm going to try to go to this. It says that they are only releasing tickets for individual screenings an hour ahead, but I think its worth the drive over there to see if there are any tickets available. I love the Chinese theater!

  3. Too bad I'm going to Disneyland/LA in MAY >_<
