And, get ready to beat the boss when Office Space , Mike Judge's quintessential film about day-to-day office life, hits L.A.'s Rialto Theatre for a special midnight screening. The film will run on Saturday night, February 24 as part of the theater's “Midnight Madness” series.
Laugh away your workplace frustrations with Peter (Ron Livingston), Samir (Ajay Naidu) and the unfortunately named Michael Bolton (David Herman). The trio hatches a cockeyed scheme to cheat the boss (a hilariously understated Gary Cole) of their cubicle-laden company out of a heap of hard-earned money.
Even though the plot of this 1999 flick – based on Judge's Milton animated shorts – is laugh-worthy enough, lots of added jokes (such as watching a senior citizen with a walker pass every car during rush-hour traffic) make the film the perfect end to any stress-filled work week. As an added bonus, Jennifer Aniston costars as a fed-up restaurant waitress who refuses to wear her flair.
The Rialto Theatre is located at 1023 Fair Oaks Ave. in Pasadena. For more information, call (626) 388-2122 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com.
