Happy New Year! And what a better way to kick off (or on) 2018 than, our 40th Anniversary SAPS Funtastical gathering of Film, & Food as we present a TEX AVERY Riotous Cartoon Masterpiece. Then, our own RUSS PECK will provide the amazing LIVE music score for the Silent gem, WE FAW DOWN (1928) as Stan & Ollie are stuck at home with their wives, unable to sneak out to a poker game. When their friends call to ask why they're delayed, Ollie pretends it's their boss, inviting them to a show at the Orpheum Theatre. On their way to the Poker Game, the boys get accidentally drenched. Luckily (!?) two girls offer to take them home to get dry. There is mischief aplenty. Good thing the Misses don't find out! Or, do they? The Comedy comes fast and furious in MIXED NUTS (1934) when our guest comedians are a bushel of Hal Roach guys and gals who run rampant at a local Girls Finishing School.

Intermission greets us as we delve into, another assortment of tantalizing treats & scintillating conversation.

After Intermission, we will have a double dose of cinema greatness. First, a SURPRISE short guaranteed to please. Then in the featurette CHICKENS COME HOME (1931) "Fertilizer King" Oliver Hardy runs for Mayor on a spotless platform of Family Values. However, former flame Mae Busch intends to show that Ollie was not exactly a "Good Boy" before his marriage to Thelma Todd. Jimmy Finlayson joins the fun as we screen the embarrassment of comedy riches.

We will also reveal our special 40th Anniversary Logo provided by artist extraordinaire Ken Mitchroney. And we will give you a surprise look at some special events and guests greeting us this year! Start the 40th year off in a hilarious way. All this entertainment, laughs and food for a measly $7. How lucky can you get?
