They May Say I'm a Slacker, but I'm Not the Only One
The New Beverly Cinema marks the dog days of summer with Slacker Week, a selection of films celebrating indolence in its many forms. If your inclination runs toward pothead humor, check out the opening-night double bill of Up in Smoke and Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. Are you more on the comic book/cartoon axis? Try the double bill of Beavis and Butt-head Do America, the MTV series' big-screen venture, and Ghost World, based on Daniel Clowes' graphic novel. If you're on double-secret probation, you'll have to see Animal House, which plays with slacker king Judd Apatow's Knocked Up. For the O.G. slacker, it's Fast Times at Ridgemont High, on a bill with Our Idiot Brother. And of course, the capper is the midnight show of The Big Lebowski on Saturday, Sept. 1. New Beverly Cinema, 7165 W. Beverly Blvd.; Sat., Aug. 26-Sat., Sept. 1.; $8, $6 seniors/kids under 12. See newbevcinema.com for showtimes.
