Cedar Lee Theatre to Celebrate Weed Day with Special Double Feature

The old California Police code 420 reportedly signified that someone was caught smoking marijuana. As a result, 4:20 p.m. has become the time of the day that many stoners light up, and April 20 (4/20) has become Weed Day. As the legalization of medicinal and recreational marijuana has gained more traction, more people now think of the day as a legitimate holiday.

Now, the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Heights) has announced it will bring two marijuana-themed cult classics to the big screen on April 20 in recognition of the day's growing reputation as an unofficial holiday for pot smokers.

Appropriately, the films include Reefer Madness, an old parental warming film about the dangers associated with cannabis, and Up in Smoke, the classic Cheech and Chong comedy. Reefer Madness screens at 6:45 p.m., and Up in Smoke shows at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the double feature are on sale now at the theatre box office or online at clevelandcinemas.com. In addition to the bargain admission, the Cedar Lee concession stand will also have happy hour drink specials with $1 off beer, wine and cocktails as well as a bottomless popcorn special for "anyone with the munchies."
