Dear Mr. Watterson : Chagrin Falls Public Library


Trailer: http://vimeo.com/5708115

This film is part of the Chagrin Documentary Film Fest. It might be possible to purchase your ticket that evening, but this is one of the most popular films being shown, so it would probably be a good idea to reserve a seat ahead of time:

The comic strip Calvin & Hobbes, created by Chagrin Falls writer-artist Bill Watterson, premiered in 1985, blazed brilliantly in newspaper syndication for ten years, then was suddenly ended by its publicity-shy creator (Watterson also shunned a fortune by not cashing in on the potential bonanza of tie-ins with Hollywood and toy licensing). Filmmaker Joel Allen Schroeder, a C&H super-fan, treks to Chagrin and vast comics archives at Ohio State - not to `stalk' the mysterious, retiring Watterson in the fashion of past documentaries such as "Roger & Me" and "Waiting for Fidel," but rather to use Calvin & Hobbes as a gateway to explore readers' longstanding love affair with characters and narratives of newsprint "funny pages." It's a languishing art form of which Mr. Watterson's dear strip was perhaps the last true classic. 88 minutes.

Following the film, the group might decide on a place to go for refreshment/discussion.

    I enjoyed the movie, particularly since I am a C&H and comics fan.

    I'm soooooo bummed you guys - the movie was sold out when I called. My son absolutely loves C&H. Hope you all enjoy it!!!

    Tanya, Heather and anyone who signs up between now and the movie.

    I will try to show up a little early and stand somewhere outside of the room where the movie will be shown (and perhaps at the entrance of the Library) so we can group and sit together, if people wish, or at least introduce ourselves. I will be in an olive drab green cargo pants and a salmon color short sleeve shirt, 6 feet tall, slender/med build and brown/graying hair.

    I look forward to the movie and meeting you tomorrow.

    This one was not set up with any restaurant or coffee shop or anything before or after but I thought I would check if there was any interest. There are places like Rick’s Café, Joey’s Restaurant and other places close by.
