October 17 is the day, people!
We’re toasting Canada’s greenest new law on Wednesday, October 17 with a screening of the ultimate, trailblazing stoner musical comedy – Cheech and Chong’s high-larious UP IN SMOKE!
An unemployed pot-smoking slacker and amateur drummer, Anthony Stoner ditches his strict parents and hits the road, eventually meeting kindred spirit Pedro de Pacas. While the drug-ingesting duo is soon arrested for possession of marijuana, Anthony and Pedro get released on a technicality, allowing them to continue their many misadventures and ultimately compete in a rock band contest, where they perform the raucous tune “Earache My Eye.”
“The funniest of all the Cheech and Chong movies, Up in Smoke provides a feast of gags for the sympathetically minded.” (TV Guide)
