SXSW fav SUPER HIGH ME at the Ritz…FREE on 4/20

And before the free show on 4/20, we're going to have ourselves a good old fashioned [tobacco cigarette] rolling contest! With kind prizes for the best [tobacco cigarette] roller!

Marijuana-logues creator Doug Benson takes his message to the streets with this feature-length film about one man's burden to stay high for 30 days....while also exploring the current situation with medical marijuana in California and the United States, specifically focusing on the conflict between federal and state law and the explosive growth in medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles over the past two years. It's not just about gettin' high... alright, narc?

As part of his journey, Doug smokes, eats and vaporizes medical marijuana for thirty consecutive days in order to get “Super High.” But there is a catch–first Doug must go thirty days without any marijuana and undertakes a number of tests, completing the same tests while medicated and while sober, in an effort to find out what marijuana does and how it really affects people.

Along the way, we follow Doug as he goes out on the road to stand up gigs across the country and hangs out with fellow comedians Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk and Patton Oswalt.

And what's better, this movie will play for free at 4:20pm on Sunday, April 20th! Can you think of a better way to celebrate Harold Lloyd's birthday?

But if you forget about that screening, we've also got some shwag screenings...starting tomorrow! Click here for info and tickets.

If your pot could talk, it would say...
'Your roommate pinches me while your away.'
