Let's All Go to the Lobby (1957)

**** (out of 4)

The National Film Registry is one of the most important awards any movie can get as it's pretty much a club that Congress brought into play back in 1989 that meant the most important films ever made would have a safe place throughout time. This meant that the film would be seen as something important and best of all is that it would be preserved for future generations. You might wonder how a 40-second short could make such a list but after you see the film you'll know why. I don't care what generation you're from or how jaded you are, this little intermission clip is without question one of the most charming films ever made and once you hear that song it'll be stuck in your head for weeks. I go to the movies quite a bit but I never buy any of the food products but I must admit that if theater owners started showing this I might find myself going out to the lobby and picking something up. The animation isn't anything ground-breaking but the sight of these items going through their walk makes you want to get up with them. Certainly one of the all-time classics no matter how long or short it is.
