Are any of you going to this? I have tickets and wondered if there'd be more of us or mostly Hollywood industry types.


Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
As part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Gold Standard screening series, the classic animated film Sleeping Beauty will be presented on Friday, July 18, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Hosted by film historian Leonard Maltin, the evening will feature the premiere screening of a newly restored digital version of the 1959 film by Walt Disney Studios.

Following the screening, a team from Walt Disney Animation Studios including Dave Bossert, creative director of special projects; animator Andreas Deja; Theo Gluck, director of library restoration and preservation; and Terry Porter, sound department chief and head rerecording mixer will participate in a panel discussion about the film, which earned an Academy Award® nomination for Music – Scoring of a musical picture (George Bruns).

Original artwork from Sleeping Beauty is showcased in “Ink & Paint: The Art of Hand-Drawn Animation.” The exhibition will be open for viewing following the screening.
