Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, is set to host a screening of the 75th anniversary screening of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) at the TCM Classic Film Festival. Turner Classic Movies (TCM), in collaboration with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, will present the film on Saturday, April 14, at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Goodwin will join film historian and author Leonard Maltin to introduce the film.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs revolutionized the art of animation with its cutting edge technique, design and storytelling—setting animation in pursuit of an ever more realistic look. Moreover, it demonstrated animation’s viability as a legitimate cinematic art form. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences bestowed a special Academy Award® on Walt Disney, recognizing Snow White as “a significant screen innovation which has charmed millions and pioneered a great new entertainment field.” The unique Oscar® trophy consisted of one full-sized statuette standing next to seven miniature versions. The film also earned an Oscar nomination for Leigh Harline’s memorable score.
In 1997, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was named one of the 100 Greatest Films of All Time by the American Film Institute (AFI). The following year, the AFI named it the greatest American animated film of all time.
You do not have to be a D23 Member to attend either of the Disney screenings!
Here is the official ticketing info from TCM:
While the ideal way to experience the 2012 TCM Classic Film Festival is with one of its four levels of passes, you can also experience the festival by purchasing individual event tickets. Open seats after passholders have been seated will be sold on a first come, first served basis at individual venue box offices and will be sold just prior to the individual program start time.
While individual tickets cannot be purchased in advance, given that multiple events will be happening simultaneously throughout much of the festival and as the number of festival passes issued is limited, individual ticket holders should be able to attend many of their desired screenings. We advise arriving at least half an hour prior to the start time of your desired events to get in the stand-by line. Individual tickets are $20 for most screenings and events. Students with valid student ID will receive a 50% discount off all individual tickets.
