ROGERS PARK — Couples looking to get high on love can head over to New 400 Theater on Wednesday for the world premiere of "Scrapers: A Romantic Comedy For Stoners" — and just in time for what some consider a national holiday.
The movie is the first independent feature-length film to come from The Capra Movie House, and tells the story of Chicagoans Mary and Hal, who while "seeking comfort in their shared passion for smoking ... inadvertently create a space in which they learn to love themselves and each other."
The date of its theater debut is no mistake — April 20 is recognized by people who smoke and partake in marijuana across the country.
The premiere was chosen in Rogers Park to showcase glimpses of the neighborhood, where the movie was filmed. The film also includes a cameo from Annoyance Theater co-founder Susan Messing, who also appeared in the Chicago-based movie, "The Break-Up" starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Anniston.
The film's score comes from local band Netherfriends.
