Classic Animation Movies

Animated films have been around since the earliest days of silent cinema. You can trace the evolution of the medium through Lotte Reiningerís magical silhouetted animations - including The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926), the first ever animated feature - and the experimental work of Norman McLaren and Jan Svankmajer. When youíre done, why not sit back and enjoy classic films such as Hoppity Goes To Town (1941) and the many adventures of Betty Boop.
