There aren’t too many reasons to be jealous of a place that is one major earthquake away from breaking off into the sea and floating to Alaska, but live read-throughs of classic films is definitely one of them.

The Fast Times read-through will close out this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival on June 18th. No word yet on the cast, but check L.A. Film Fest’s Twitter for updates.
