Wichita’s Orpheum Theatre, an SMG-managed facility, has partnered with Lamphouse Entertainment, LLC for a 75th Anniversary screening of Max Fleischer’s Gulliver’s Travels at 7 p.m. on Aug. 14.
Originally released in Technicolor in 1939, Gulliver’s Travels is the first animated feature released by Paramount Pictures, and the second-ever in the history of animated feature films, next to Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Based on Jonathan Swift’s 18th century novel, Gulliver’s Travels is a great addition to the Orpheum’s summer family film schedule.
Preceding the feature on Aug. 14, the Orpheum will screen a short cartoon of one of Max Fleischer’s most famous characters, Betty Boop, in Poor Cinderella.
General admission tickets to see Gulliver’s Travels on Thursday, Aug. 14 are $5 for adults, $4 for students, seniors and military. All tickets will be sold at the door.
