Join filmmakers for a Q&A at the 7:20 PM 3D showing of the hit animated film, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, this Sunday, October 11th at the Arclight Theaters in Hollywood, CA.
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs opened as the #1 movie in North America on September 18, winning critical praise and more than $85 million at the boxoffice. Columbia Pictures' and Sony Pictures Animation's Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs is the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children's book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain. Just this week, TimeOut Magazine named the movie one of the top 50 animated movies of all-time.
Writer/Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be joined by visual effects supervisor Rob Bredow to answer questions and explain how they made the movie. The 20 minute Q&A session following the movie will be moderated by Kevin Winston, Digital LA founder.
