Film events to put on your weekend to see list

--Seattle's Transgender Film Festival starts tomorrow (that's Thursday, May 8th) and runs through Sunday, featuring a variety of features and shorts in every genre from around the world. The fest kicks off tomorrow at 6pm with a free event at Capitol Hill Library called "Re-Examined &Remade", an examination of films and tv shows where transmale identities were present but not always discussed in the open. Most the of the films will be at the Northwest Film Forum throughout the weekend. You can read synopsis of the films and get times ticket information here. --Does everyone remember Sunday is Mother's Day? Good. After you've taken your mom out to breakfast, head to the Central Cinema for Gay City and Three Dollar Bill's annual screening of Mommie Dearest. If by some chance you haven't seen this camp classic, seeing it on the big screen with a bunch of enthusiastic people would be an excellent way to experience it for the first time. Doors open at 11am the film starts at noon. "I'm mad at the dirt!" movie tickets are $15 and include a bottomless cup of coffee; "This isn't my first time at the rodeo!" movie tickets are $20 and include a continental breakfast and a mimosa, for a more FESTIVE morning!* Get the full dish here. --The Bette Davis Turns 100! series ends this weekend at the Grand Illusion Cinema with Hush...Hush Sweet Charlotte starring Davis as a recluse who must rally to save her mansion from destruction and a horrible family secret from being unearthed (literally!), with gruesome insanity busting out all over. It plays Friday and Saturday at 11pm. *from the menu at the Crocodile Cafe, where I always took my mom to eat on Mother's Day. We both miss you, Croc.
