Chuck Jones' Phantom Tollbooth playing today at 12pm in Pleasantville, NY

The Phantom Tollbooth

Everyone will love this imaginative tale of the supremely bored Milo who finds a toll booth in his room one day, hops into his toy car, and journeys to a pun-filled fantasyland. The great Chuck Jones directs this ingenious mixture of live action and animation based on the beloved book.

Showing with: The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics (1965) Chuck Jones’ spectacular 10-minute short about a straight line in love with a dot who prefers an undisciplined squiggle. Winner, Oscar for Best Animated Short.
