It's a safe bet that after its first run Pineapple Express, the cannabis-powered comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, will become an arthouse staple, programmed into the late-night "cult classic" time slot. But this might be your only chance to see the film at the hour at which it was truly meant to be viewed. That's right, Cheech -- we're talking 4:20 p.m. An '80s-style action flick rolled up with a buddy movie, Pineapple Express requires very little concentration to follow. It bumbles through a plot enlivened by stellar cameos, neck-cracking chase scenes, and Sprite-spraying one-liners. In other words, it's perfect for viewing through a cloud of unfiltered inspiration. Set your alarm clocks, and get your lighters ready. (Also shows at 7:15 p.m., 9:35 p.m.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
