A 4/20 Celebration (presented by 5 Every Day, feat. "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"!)

Presented by 5 EVERY DAY

Its arrival heralded a breaktaking new chapter in feature animation — it gave us a thousand reasons to fall in love with old Los Angeles anew — and it offered up enough bug-eyed trippy moments to satisfy stoners from the Inland Empire to the Outer Venturas. We’ll be honest: Who Framed Roger Rabbit’s most wild moments washed over us in sugary wonderment upon its original 1988 release, but in the right current frame of mind, they’re a huge reason for us to get together and light up in tribute to a film that just keeps on giving. Our good friends from 5 Every Day, the phone app keeping us in-the-know about art/food/music/film/life in town, will be here to host, and to tour us through the film’s many nods to a previous version of L.A. that now exists only in the movies. DJ Adam Papagan (The Del Talk Show) will be here to spin tunes before the show. Plus, come early, so that you can thrill to our special mindbending pre-show slate of trippy animated shorts — and we’ll have treats on the back patio by our friends at The Art of Edibles!
Dir. Robert Zemeckis, 1988, 35mm, 104 min.
