We regret that due to lack of availability of a playable print we must cancel our screenings of ROGER RABBIT.
(1988) dir Robert Zemeckis w/Bob Hoskins, Charles Fleischer, Christopher Lloyd, Kathleen Turner, Joanna Cassidy [104 min]
This classic animation/live action hybrid was the actual winner of our special Leap Day screening poll back in February, but we were unable to secure a print at the time. We love this film – and can’t believe that it has never shown at the Brattle – so we decided to bring it in as soon as we could. Bob Hoskins stars in this candy-colored neo-noir as a washed up detective who gets in over his head when he decides to protect a famous cartoon rabbit named Roger (voiced by Fleischer) when he is framed for murder.
