KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang," starring Robert Downey Jr., Friday through Sunday, Feb. 10-12, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

KFS is sponsoring the film as a fund-raiser for WIDR 89.1 FM, the alternative, non-commercial student radio station at WMU.

In "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang," Downey is a charming, petty New York thief who suddenly finds himself in Hollywood with a gay private detective, played by Val Kilmer, as his acting "coach." Enter Michelle Monaghan as an aspiring actress whose sister has just been murdered. The stage is set for a movie that combines film noir, buddy-action-adventure, potboiler, murder mystery, comedy and romantic fantasy.
