As you may or may not be aware, 2023 is “The Year Of The Rabbit” in the Chinese Zodiac. Though that “year” doesn’t technically begin until January 22, Times Cinema isn’t wasting much time before hopping into 2023 with a creative new film series that’s rooted around the common theme of…rabbits. From Friday, January 6 through Thursday, January 26, the theater (located at 5906 W. Vliet St.) will show six classic films that, at least in part, fit the “Year Of The Rabbit” theme.

Some selections—such as Donnie Darko, HarveyBambi, and of course Who Framed Roger Rabbit—prominently portray the titular animal type at length. The connection is a little tenuous in other films, but if the brief presence of bunnies is the reason we get to see The Matrix and Monty Python And The Holy Grail on the big screen again, we’ll let it slide. All tickets are $11. Hares, er, here’s the lineup for Times Cinema’s “Year Of The Rabbit” film series.
