This Wednesday, 3/28, at 6:30 pm in Crawford 169 is the sixth Cinematheque screening of the semester.

Jess FitzPatrick (Ph.D. student, literature) will present Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), the fifth in our ‘Anthropomorphism‘ series.

About ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ (from ‘Netflix’):

Director Robert Zemeckis seamlessly mixes live action with animation wizardry in this cinematic groundbreaker featuring Bob Hoskins as gruff gumshoe Eddie Valiant, who agrees to take the case of Roger Rabbit, a zany cartoon star framed for murder. But when blackmail and adultery come into play, Eddie discovers that his investigation is hardly kid stuff.

How to get to Crawford Hall from the Cathedral of Learning:

Exit the Cathedral of Learning towards Fifth Ave. Take a right on Fifth Ave. Turn left on Tennyson Ave. (between Alumni Hall and Clapp Hall). Pass Clapp Hall and Langley Hall on your right. The building immediately after Langley Hall (and also on your right) is Crawford Hall.

P.S. Free pizza!
