Though the warm weather is taking a curtain call, there are still movies to be seen. We just put out a new round of STAFF PICKS for your renting pleasure, with selections that run the spectrum from Jean Cocteau's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST to THE CABLE GUY, with most everything in between and beyond. While in the store, be sure to enter to win two tickets to the REVENANT FILM FESTIVAL. We also still have the highly limited edition, not available anywhere else, geniuinely frame-worthy CRITERION POSTER here FREE with your purchase of any Criterion DVD. Happening theatrically this weekend, SIFF Cinema has awoken from its summer slumber with a slew of new films. They start off today with Roy Andersson's YOU, THE LIVING, will host the Maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival September 18-20, and a bunch of excellent films after that. You can also see Clive Owen's new film THE BOYS ARE BACK before it arrives in theaters at a SIFF benefit screening on Thursday, September 24th. SIFF is also in the midst of their annual fundraising campaign which you can donate to here. The WASHINGTON GROWN Northwest Film Festival continues at Grand Illusion Cinema and the late night screenings return with BITE SIZE. Central Cinema has an one-two punch of awesome with a MICHAEL JACKSON Sing-a-long tribute and the CRAZY ABOUT SWAYZE double feature of DIRTY DANCING ("I carried a watermelon!") and ROAD HOUSE ("I see you've found the trophy room. The only thing missing is your ass!"). Northwest Film Forum's 69 series continues with two back-to-school classics: IF... (starring Malcolm McDowell) and THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE (starring Maggie Smith, who is perennially in her prime). If you're headed to Fremont's OKTOBERFEST on Saturday be sure to catch the last Fremont Outdoor Movie of the year, ANIMAL HOUSE (it will be warm so togas are definitely appropriate). There's also THE BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL at the Henry Art Gallery and out neighbors Flowers on the Ave. Enjoy!
