On Wednesday night SA Studios hosted a VIP tribute event honoring film legends Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in anticipation of their upcoming film together called “Righteous Kill.” Tattooist Mister Cartoon and photographer/director Estevan Oriol designed the film’s poster. The space is filled with Pacino and De Niro’s most iconic film memorabilia, including plasma screens throughout the place showcasing Oriol and Cartoon’s favorite scenes from Pacino and De Niro’s film repertoire and a customized movie poster wall of the actors’ film history.
Crowds of folks lined up at the corner of East 6th and Los Angeles in Downtown L.A. to get a sneak preview of the space and check out next door neighbors The Last Laugh (Estevan Oriol and Mister Cartoon’s storefronts) and streetwear apparel brand Upper Playground.
Attendees were treated to a catered taco station and hot dog stand, adult beverages, and music from DJ Skee. While some interesting names showed there face with the likes of Danny Trejo, Clifton Collins Jr., Jacob Vargas, DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, Rohan Marley, and Latin hip-hop artist Malverde in attendance.
Come check out a tribute to De Niro and Pacino: The “Righteous Kill” space is open until September 15.
