If you've recovered from your Thanksgiving revelry and are ready to start feasting on film, head down to the store this weekend for all your movie watching and movie gift-giving needs (If you're still not in any condition to leave the house, start shopping here). Remember, if you bring in a non-perishable food donation for Northwest Harvest, we'll give you a 2 for 1 RENTAL COUPON. In theaters, Grand Illusion Cinema is showing THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER starring Robert Mitchum. In the introduction to the new "The Best American Non-Required Reading" collection, "Persepolis" creator Marjane Satrapi calls it, "One and a half hours of film, one and a half hours of masterpiece. Each second, each shot, each sequence was just unbelievable." For the Late Night movie there's the 1980 slasher hit SILENT SCREAM. Northwest Film Forum commemorates the 10th anniversary of the WTO protests with THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD (Yes Man Andy Bichlbaum will be in attendance for screenings on the 28th &29th, see their site for details). Central Cinema has 1977's HOUSE, a surreal film experienced described as "an episode of Scooby Doo as directed by Dario Argento." SIFF Cinema is taking the weekend off but will return in full film force next week with benefit screenings of BROTHERS and ME AND ORSON WELLES. We also recommend you stop by our Wes Anderson section and revisit his films before you head out to FANTASTIC MR. FOX. Those of us who've seen it are absolutely smitten.
