Robin Hood (free screening in Congress Sq Park) 1973
@ Congress Square Park
SPACE is happy to be presenting the 1973, mammal-forward Disney animated classic Robin Hood. You get swept away with its earthy color palate, the infectious folk songs by Roger Miller, the cuteness of the animals, and its clear eyed take on universal emotionality- love is love, sad is sad, greed is bad. There’s something undeniably comforting about its lack of pretension, deep romanticism and resounding celebration of community. Foxy and kid friendly, join us in Sherwood Forrest… or Congress Sq Park. Some people’s favorite Disney movie for sure.
“The tale of Robin Hood, the legendary outlaw of English folklore, has long inspired struggles for justice. Coming out in 1973, at the height of a revolutionary era in global history known as the long Sixties, this animated rendition of the Sherwood revolutionary who frees prisoners and steals gold from the hated Prince John had unmistaken anti-capitalist and counter-culture themes unlikely to have been the intention of its big studio initiators.”- Universal Cinema
