60 Looney Tunes cartoons coming to the Cinematheque

Add event to my calendar

Sixty classic Warner Bros cartoons from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s will show in the upcoming Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque series “Still Looney After All These Years.” This five-program retrospective will run from July 5 through August 2 in the Cinematheque’s regular theatre, Aitken Auditorium at the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle. Every movie will be projected from 35mm film.

“This is the first Looney Tunes series we’ve ever presented in our 28-year-history,” said Cinematheque Director John Ewing. “And summer seems the ideal time to reconnect with old friends like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Roadrunner, Wile E. Coyote, and director Chuck Jones.”

The Cinematheque’s Looney Tunes series will be supplemented in July and August with new international films, second-run movies, and feature-length film classics, including four rarities by neglected French master Jean Grémillon. See the complete two-month film schedule here.

Starting July 1, admission to most Cinematheque screenings will be $9; Cinematheque members and those age 25 & under $7. A second film on the same day costs an additional $7. Any exceptions to these prices are noted. Free parking for most Cinematheque films is available in the adjacent CIA lot, located off of East Boulevard. For further information, call John Ewing or Tim Harry at 216.421.7450 or send an email to
