  • The Plaza Theatre 1113 Kensington Rd NW Calgary, AB, T2N Canada (map)


DIR. ROBERT ZEMECKIS | 1988 | 110 Min | PG, Not Recommended for Young Children

Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) gets hired by cartoon producer R.K. Maroon (Alan Tilvern) to investigate an adultery scandal involving Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner), the sultry wife of Maroon's biggest star, Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer). But when Marvin Acme (Stubby Kaye), Jessica's alleged paramour and the owner of Toontown, is found murdered, the villainous Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) vows to catch and destroy Roger.


Rollin Stanley has worked in four major metro areas in North America, in urban, suburban and rural environments and distressed and booming urban areas. For The City of Calgary, he manages a portfolio including planning, development, permitting, inspections and property and business assessment. The Calgary Herald reported he was “the right person to reinvigorate the planning approval process” and his joining The City was seen as a “clear indication Calgary is achieving success in the goal to be a magnet for global talent.” Previously he worked in Washington DC, St. Louis, and Toronto.
