If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, Nov. 12, you can catch a special big-screen first look at The X’s, a new Nickelodeon cartoon series about a family of world-class super spies trying to live incognito in suburbia. The free screening will be held at The Bridge: Cinema de Lux at 11 a.m. Print this story to serve as an admission ticket for yourself and up to three guests.
Created by Annie Award winner Carlos Ramos (Chalkzone, Oh Yeah! Cartoons) The X’s features the voices of Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld), Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me), Jansen Panettier (Racing Stripes) and Lynsey Bartilson (Grounded for Life) as the title oddball operatives who must carry put their cloak-and-dagger missions without disturbing the neighbors.
While The X’s bears a resemblance to the Disney/Pixar feature The Incredibles, Ramos says his show was in development long before the film hit the screen. He further asserts that inspiration for the show came instead from James Bond films and the cheeky ’60s TV spy spoofs Get Smart and The Avengers. The X’s will premiere on Nickelodeon with three back-to-back episodes on Friday, Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.
Seating for the screening is on a first-come, first-served basis. The Bridge: Cinema de Lux is located at 6081 Center Drive in Los Angeles. Call 310-568-3375 for theater information.
