The Battle of the Sexes: Animated

April 12 at 9:00pm

It’s a war that’s been going on for eons — the Battle of the Sexes: Animated! Well, finally it will be resolved — we’re bringing the battle to the big screen April 12 at 9:00pm, in a program co-presented with the Woodstock Film Festival. Famed animators and Woodstock Film Festival Animation Programmers Bill Plympton and Signe Baumane will square off toe-to-toe by showing the funniest, sexiest animated cartoons in a 5-round match to discover which gender makes the hottest cartoons! And the audience decides the winner!

So bring your friends and be there for the “Thrilla in the Village”, the “Smackdown in Smacktown,” as Plympton calls it. A surprise trophy will be awarded and the winner of this timeless debate will finally be determined.
