Last night, the Sunshine Landmark hosted the premier of the new film Magic Trip: Ken Kesey’s Search for a Kool Place. Guests included Jennifer Missoni, Nev and Robert Schulman, Genevieve Jones, Irina Pataneva, Meredith Ostrom, Nanette Lepore and Hannah Bronfman. The documentary film is about the notorious 1964 road trip of acid-enjoying author and cultural icon Ken Kesey.

The voyage  inspired requisite counter-culture read The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe. Kesey and his Merry Pranksters had intended to make a film about the cross-country odyssey back in the sixties but the project never came to fruition. Until now.

Check out a trailer for the film here.
