Activities of note for the weekend and beyond...

We know you've got a busy weekend to get to so we'll just hit the bullet points and let you explore from there: --Friday, October 3rd (TONIGHT!) is BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER triva at Neptune Coffee in Greenwood. Like our 80s Movie Trivia Night, this is also a benefit for Neptune's across the street neighbors 826 Seattle, a non-profit writing and tutoring center for students 6-18. It's $5 a person to play, and they'll be prizes a plenty. Start thinking about all the bands that played the Bronze. --Also TONIGHT is the fancy kick off party for the 11th annual LOCAL SIGHTINGS FILM FESTIVAL at the Northwest Film Forum. They'll be drinkin' and dancin' and red carpet struttin' along with hobbing and nobbing with luminaries in the film community. The fest is chock full of local films of all genres, showcases, panels with knowlegeable people and surprises and much more. It runs through Oct. 8th. --When you visit the store this weekend, be sure to stop by the front counter and enter to win two tickets to the REVENANT FILM FESTIVAL, a "showcase of undead cinema" on Friday, October 11th at the Museum of History and Industry. Follow the link for some gruesome trailers! --Save the date of Wednesday, October 22nd for a screening of RetarDead (the sequel to the indie cult fave Monsterud) at 7pm at the Historic University Theater. You can learn more about the movie here and here. Judging by the photos, this film is probably a lot of sick dumb fun, just what we're looking for this time of year. --The 13th annual SEATTLE LESBIAN AND GAY FILM FESTIVAL starts Friday, October 17th. We love the posters and will soon have a bunch of them in our front window. We just started browsing the lineup and already know we are definitely seeing this. One word of advice for the next few days is to call ahead if you want to check out Iron Man or Forgetting Sarah Marshall. We can hold New Releases for an hour. What will you be watching this weekend? Stay dry and happy viewing, everyone.
