WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBiT (1988 – 35th Anniversary) (PG) 1h 49m
Bring the whole family to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of one of the most extraordinary films ever made with an extremely rare presentation of Walt Disney’s archival 35mm print. This utterly groundbreaking combination of live action and animation, follows private detective Eddie Valient (performed with gusto by Bob Hoskins) as he attempts to uncover a murder mystery in “Toontown”, all the while being handcuffed to the unstoppably hilarious Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer, who gives a career defining performance.) Let’s not forget one of the sexiest femme fatales ever to grace the silver screen, Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner) nor one the most diabolically evil villains, Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd.)
Directors Robert Zemeckis & Richard Williams, along with producer Steven Spielberg, managed to convince Walt Disney studios to incorporate hundreds of characters from almost every animated studio throughout the history of cinema. The results are a stunningly sincere, psychotically silly and surprisingly subversive PG-rated kids flick, that helped kickstart Walt Disney’s second renaissance (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King), as well as arguably doing the same for the neo-Film Noir explosion of the 1990s (Basic Instinct, L.A. Confidential, Lost Highway.) Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience! 1988, 104 minutes. 35mm archival print courtesy of Walt Disney.
