Terry Gilliam’s TIME BANDITS: “Mom! Dad! It’s Evil! Don’t touch it!”

Terry Gilliam's TIME BANDITS @ the Hammer Museum, Sunday, April 18th


“Stand by for Mind Control!” 

Terry Gilliam’s 1981 classic TIME BANDITS is part of the Armand Hammer  Museum‘s Hammer Kids series but you don’t have to go with a kid to enjoy this visually stunning fantasy-comedy on the big screen…for FREE!  Written with fellow Monty Pythoner Michael Palin,  Gilliam’s  irreverent tale follows a boy whose dreams of adventure are  unexpectedly realized when he falls in with a band of  bumbling  dwarves who are traveling through time and space trying to steal history’s treasures. 

Evil and the Supreme Being appear frequently. 

In addition to Python alumni Palin and John Cleese, the illustrious cast includes Sean Connery, Ian Holm, Ralph Richardson, Shelly Duval, Katherine Helmond and a young Jim Broadbent.   FREE tickets are available an hour before showtime on a first come, first served basis at the Billy Wilder Theater Box Office. 

Post time-travel, stroll a few blocks down Westwood Boulevard to Saffron and Rose Ice Cream.   The shop has reliable favorites like chocolate fudge, mixed berry, lemon and pistachio but the owners are generous with samples so you can try white rose and saffron (the  signature Persian flavors)  as well as other exotic tastes such as cucumber, cantaloupe, poppyseed and orange blossom.  The traditional way to eat this delectable ice cream is sandwiched between two, thin, waffle-like wafers.  

Ms. Go Go would like a double order of poppyseed and tradition to go, please. 

Ready? U KNow U Want 2 Go Go….
