reader Jess Price sent in this photo (above
) from the cartoon screening he attended last night: Chuck Jones' 1957 Bugs Bunny cartoon What's Opera Doc?
on the world's largest high-definition screen.
Jess wrote, saying, "I'm always sad I'm nowhere near Los Angeles for all the great screenings you promote. Today, however, I was able to see the world's largest cartoon screening at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
"Attached is a photo of "What's Opera Doc?" on a screen measuring 72' high by 160' wide (equaling 11,520 square feet) -- stretching some 60 yards over the football field below."
At 6:45 PM, prior to a live simulcast of Puccini's Turandot at Cowboys Stadium,
the Dallas Opera
presented "what is believed to be the world's largest cartoon screening (based on screen size): Warner Brothers classic masterpiece, What's Opera, Doc?
starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd and voted the #1 cartoon ever produced (in 1994, by a thousand members of the animation field)."
Next year, Price says, "they announced they're going to try to show Rabbit of Seville".
