Once upon a time cartoons were a standard feature before the main attraction in movie theaters, and before TV and home video that was the only way to see them. The Artopee Way Drive-in celebrates those classic cartoon mainstays of American culture with a program of Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and more. Good for all ages. Tailgate or BYO lawn chair. Presented in memory of Nyack’s Victor Overton, a man who loved classic cartoons and Nyack.

Many of these cartoons were made by eight-time Academy Award Nominee and three-time winner, Chuck Jones. Here’s a great little 8 minute video on the art of Chuck Jones by video blogger / film essayist Tony Zhou:
