The City of Los Angeles Will Finally Achieve Peak La La Land on April 25

Oh, you thought the Oscars were Peak <i>La La Land</i>, but you underestimated the awesome power of this movie to make us all believe again

From the Oscars to the Grammys, Los Angeles is always hosting events where celebrities give each other awards and feel great about themselves, and now the city is getting in on the action. Mayor Eric Garcetti has declared April 25 La La Land Day in honor of the almost Oscar-winning film, the L.A. Times reports. Since La La Land is both set in Los Angeles and takes its title from one of the city’s nicknames, the move feels a bit self-congratulatory but also kind of perfect.

Tuesday, April 25, was chosen because it’s the day the movie comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray. A public dedication ceremony will take place at 8:30 a.m. on the steps of City Hall. Plans for the event include a live jazz band, an official dedication by the mayor, and a dance medley inspired by the movie performed by the BANDALOOP aerial dancers. La La Land director Damien Chazelle, composer Justin Hurwitz, and choreographer Mandy Moore are among those expected to attend.
