Luke Wilson, George Lopez enjoy party

HOLLYWOOD — The “Henry Poole Is Here” premiere Thursday played out like a neighborhood barbecue. After a screening at the ArcLight, guests were treated to food hot off the grill on the theater’s rooftop.

“I hope I can find a hot dog somewhere,” said Overture Films topper Chris McGurk who enjoyed the relaxed party environment alongside pic’s Luke Wilson, George Lopez, Cheryl Hines and Radha Mitchell.

As for the film, McGurk said he was really taken with it after seeing it at Sundance. “It’s a sweet little movie, very inspirational,” he said. “We thought it was different than all the movies out there.”
