4:00 PM DFT Auditorium

Watch Me Move is the most extensive animation exhibition ever mounted, featuring both iconic moments and rare masterpieces from the first 150 years of the medium. A spectacularly designed series of galleries allow visitors to stroll through an incredible array of animation techniques via more than 100 film segments from across generations and cultures.

Enhance your visit to Watch Me Move by attending an animation compilation in the historic Detroit Film Theatre. All exhibition visitors receive one free ticket for the films listed below; additional tickets are $5.00 each. Total running time for each film is approximately 60 min. 

For sheer audacity and comic invention, perhaps no other Hollywood studio matched the imaginative cartoon output of Warner Bros. The words "Looney Tunes" appearing in a darkened theater brought immediate cheers, as edgy characters like Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and the Road Runner were brought to life. Program curated By Steve Stanchfield, Professor of Animation, Entertainment Arts, College for Creative Studies.
