The Cinefamily presents a major three-day retrospective and art
exhibition at The Silent Movie Theatre this weekend, 9/26-9/28: The Hubleys, A Centennial Celebration. Screenings include newly restored and
35mm prints, an art exhibition of original Hubley family artwork, and live
John Hubley had been a Disney animator and a pioneer at UPA (he created Mr. Magoo), but during the McCarthy days he
refused to name names and was blacklisted. This led to him forming his own
fiercely independent animation studio with his wife, which became one
the most influential animation teams of the 20th
Century — they won Oscars and created the whole mid-century cartoon aesthetic.
Their daughters Georgia (also the singer for Yo
La Tengo) and Emily Hubley – an accomplished animator in her own
right – will be presenting the films all weekend and there will be a
weekend-long exhibition of original Hubley family artwork with prints and
original pieces for sale on the Cinefamily back patio.
