Space Jam

Directed by
Joe Pytka

Central Cinema is proud to present THE MOST AMBITIOUS CROSSOVER EVENT OF ALL TIME, or at the very least the 1990s. (Cue the Quad City DJs.) Classic Looney Tunes short THE RABBIT OF SEVILLE (1950) will precede all screenings.

“A great deal of fun, confirming that [Michael] Jordan is every bit as mythological a creature as Daffy Duck or Yosemite Sam.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum

Swackhammer (Danny DeVito), an evil alien theme park owner, needs a new attraction at Moron Mountain. When his gang, the Nerdlucks, heads to Earth to kidnap Bugs Bunny (Billy West) and the Looney Tunes, Bugs challenges them to a basketball game to determine their fate. The aliens agree, but they steal the powers of NBA basketball players, including Larry Bird (Larry Bird) and Charles Barkley (Charles Barkley) — so Bugs gets some help from superstar Michael Jordan (Michael Jordan).

“Space Jam is a seamless marvel as Jordan slams and jams in the Looney Tune world… a dazzlingly visual treat.” – Hollywood Reporter
