In celebration of the City of Los Angeles’ support for the arts, Mayor Garcetti declared April 25 “La La Land Day” to honor director Damien Chazelle, in addition to the other “La La Land” crew in attendance, for their extraordinary portrait of the city and its iconic locations.

A live jazz band played and the Bandaloop aerial dancers performed a medley of dances inspired by the film on the face of City Hall.

In the film, Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.”La La Land” broke the record for wins at the Golden Globes earlier in the year with seven, where Chazelle took home Globes for both writing and directing.

The box-office smash and owner of a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, the Lionsgate musical won the Oscars for best director, actress, production design, cinematography, score and original song in February.

“La La Land’ is  now available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, iTunes and On Demand April 25 from Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate Company.
