Normally we show movies at the Bagdad Theater. Thread some film through a projector, turn a big lightbulb on – Boom. Magic. But Friday, September 2nd? That’s not what’s happening. We’re taking the contents of your childhood, and we’re tipping that on its side, spilling it into the projector, and we’re gonna splash that all over the screen in all its vivid, hand-painted, goofy glory.
We’re not just showing a movie. We’re showing “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”
This is the original 35mm film, filling the Bagdad’s screen with Bob Zemeckis’ genius, Bob Hoskins’ grumpiness, Roger’s ridiculousness and Jessica’s allure, with Bugs, Mickey, Donald, Daffy, Betty Boop, Droopy Dog and about a hundred other classic cartoons sharing the screen for the first and likely only time together.
The doors of the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne) open at 10pm, pre-show entertainment starts at 10:30pm, and the film begins at 11pm. Admission is only $3, and you have to be 21 or over.
