Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke is a 1978 American comedy film directed by Lou Adler and starring the comedy duo Cheech & Chong. The film revolves around an unemployed pot-smoking slacker and amateur drummer, Anthony Stoner (Tommy Chong) who ditches his strict parents and hits the road, eventually meeting kindred spirit Pedro de Pacas (Cheech Marin).

While the drug-ingesting duo is soon arrested for possession of marijuana, Anthony and Pedro get released on a technicality, allowing them to continue their many misadventures and ultimately compete in a rock band contest, where they perform the raucous tune "Earache My Eye."

The Rosendale Theatre in Rosendale, NY (Ulster County) is a three-story, 260-seat movie theatre and performance center that first opened as a casino in 1905 and began showing films in the 1920s.

A stage was installed in the 1930s and the venue started showing live vaudeville and burlesque acts, and once housed the town's fire department. Anthony Cacchio Sr. rented the building in 1949 and converted it into a movie theater, showing about 300 movies a year.

After more than 60 years of operation, the Cacchio family decided to sell, and the venue ownership was transferred to a nonprofit, the Rosendale Theatre Collective in 2010.
