Halloween is fast approaching! Prepare yourself this weekend with some selections from our Halloween and/or Kids Halloween sections. We also just put out a new round of STAFF PICKS, including ALIEN, BATTLE OF ALGIERS, John Cassavettes' HUSBANDS, ROLLERBALL, STUNT ROCK and about 150 other titles we hope you'll enjoy. If you're looking to get spooked up in theaters, Central Cinema has Peter Jackson's DEAD ALIVE, Fremont Outdoor Cinema moves inside for a special Halloween kick-off with DARK SIDE OF THE RAINBOW, and Grand Illusion Cinema has brand new 35 mm prints of THE CAT AND THE CANARY and THE GHOST BREAKER starring Bob Hope, along with the Late Night movie SLIME CITY. In non-Halloween realted film, the SEATTLE LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL wraps up this weekend with many excellent movies, including a WEST SIDE STORY sing-a-long at the Cinerama and Sunday's Closing Night film HANNAH FREE, with director Wendy Jo Carlton, producer Tracy Baim and star Sharon Gless in attendance. SIFF Cinema hosts the NORDIC LIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL with films from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland such as the Opening Night's EVERLASTING MOMENTS. Northwest Film Forum has the new R.E.M. documentary THIS IS NOT A SHOW which features performances and backstage footage from their "working rehearsals" at Dublin's Olympia Theatre before the release of their latest album ACCELERATE. I'll be the one dancing in the front during "Supernatural Superserious".
