On Tuesday morning, downtown L.A. is going Hollywood.

Mayor Eric Garcetti will formally declare April 25 "La La Land" Day with a celebration at City Hall. The date coincides with the DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie, which was filmed across Los Angeles.

The festivities begin Tuesday at 8 a.m., with the mayor’s ceremony slated to start at 8:30 a.m.

A jazz band will kick things off, followed by aerial dancers from Bandaloop performing a dance medley off the side of City Hall.

Director Damien Chazelle, composer Justin Hurwitz, production designers David Wasco and Sandy Reynolds-Wasco, choreographer Mandy Moore and jewelry designer Kyle Chan are all expected to attend.

If you were driving downtown this morning – say, if you were on your way to work at the L.A. Times building down the street – you might have caught them rehearsing.

From the sound of it, they’ll be dancing to “Another Day of Sun,” the opening song from the “La La Land” soundtrack.
