Jonah Hill's "Mid90s" Premiere Photos

Monday night, skateboarding’s elite arrived in downtown LA for the premiere of Mid90s—Jonah Hill’s directorial debut. Jonah knows that skateboarders are very critical when it comes to misrepresenting their scene, and with that said, calculated steps were taken to ensure that the story he was telling was authentic. Jonah picked the main cast members straight outta Stoner Plaza skatepark and enlisted Mikey Alfred as co-producer. The result was not only a movie that tells the story of what it was like to be a teenage skater in the 90’s, but a film that also received rounds of solid praise from the skaters that grew up during that very same era. —Joe Hammeke
