We can’t wait for Friday night and hope you’ll join us at the @narocinema for this awesomeness!!! Repost @flickitfridays ・・・ #FunFact⠀ Bob Hoskins said that, for two weeks after seeing the movie, his young son wouldn't talk to him. When finally asked why, his son said he couldn't believe his father would work with cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny and not let him meet them.⠀ ⠀ WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT shows this Friday night, Dec 14th, at 9:15pm as a benefit for @virginiamoca. Sponsored by @smartmouthbeer, @cardinalskateshop, @chownorfolk, @stagerightlighting, & @yorgosbageldashery.
