ART, EVENTS &PERFORMANCE
A nimated films just don't have the built-in appeal any longer, do they? Not like they used to. It used to be practically a holiday when the yearly Disney film came out. It was an event! "The Lion King," "The Little Mermaid," shoot, I have vague recollections of "Bambi" changing my life when it was released. Nowadays, though, animated films are about as rare as rom-coms (romantic comedies for those unfamiliar with that term I claim to have coined).
