On Movie Mondays, the Uptown Knauer Performing Arts Center presents some of their favorite movies. Tickets are $5 and include complimentary popcorn—a perfect family night out! This week’s feature film is Disney’s Fantasia.
If you’ve never seen Walt Disney’s Fantasia on a big screen, now is the time. The backstory is that the animated character Mickey Mouse was declining in popularity and Disney was seeking to revive its image. Disney was working on a short film, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and as production costs rose, he decided to create a feature length film. Fantasia is a collection of animated interpretations of great works of Western classical music, ranging from the abstract to depictions of mythology and fantasy, and settings including the prehistoric, supernatural and sacred. Presented as a concert, Bach, Beethoven, Stravinsky, Stokowski, Dukas, Ponchielli and other brilliant composers are matched to each gorgeous sequence—and there is even a jazz intermission.
