Who Framed Roger Rabbit
The CU Film Society is extremely excited to announce that we will be sponsoring the Art Theater Late Night Movie on January 27 which we’ve been able to select as one of our all-time favorite films: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”!! This landmark film directed by Robert Zemeckis ushered in the new golden age of animation in 1988! Even more exciting: the film will be presented in glorious 35mm, just like it was shown in ’88 (and if most of you are like us, you probably haven’t seen the film in a theater since then either!). Tickets are only $5 a person and the film will show at 10:00 pm. Subsequent showtimes will be listed here soon.

Synopsis: ’Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her.
