Get on your footy pajamas and get ready to shuffle down “Memory Lane” as Oddball Films and guest curator Kat Shuchter bring you the complete 1974 Emmy award-winning Television broadcast of Free to be You and Me. Marlo Thomas gathered together a cavalcade of stars to teach children positive, “modern” values, like gender and race-equality, tolerance, selflessness and most-importantly singing and dancing. Roberta Flack and Michael Jackson play dress-up and accept their physical shortcomings in When We Grow Up. Mel Brooks voices a cheeky baby puppet, Alan Alda lends his voice to the story of a princess who outruns all the boys, while football player Rosie Grier sings It’s Alright to Cry. Harry Belafonte teaches us that Parents are People, and Marlo sits and sings fireside with Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge. There’s singing, dancing, cartoons, and plenty of laughs. With vintage commercial breaks an episode of Sid and Marty Kroft’s The Banana Splits – the love-child of Sid and Marty Krofft and Hanna-Barbera! It’s a night of nostalgia you’ve never forgotten…

Admission: $10.00 – Limited Seating RSVP to programming@oddballfilm.com or 415-558-8117
