Theatrical happenings as the New Year begins

Happy New Year! Scarecrow will be open until 8pm on New Year's Eve (Friday) and then we'll re-open at our regular 11am time on New Year's Day, so figure out what you want your last movie of 2010 and/or first movie of 2011 to be and head on it. Friday night you can ring in 2011 at Central Cinema with a FOOTLOOSE dance & sing-along, complete with sweet dance videos and a midnight toast. And because you can't go wrong with a classic, their run of GHOSTBUSTERS has been extended in to the new year. Speaking of classic 80s films, on Wednesday at CC The Stranger's Lindy West hosts another installment of Reel Grrls' "Awesome Movies Directed By Women" series with the Kilmerrific REAL GENIUS. Elsewhere east of I-5, Northwest Film Forum stars the new year with a mini-fest NINE NATION ANIMATION, a round up of recent award-winning short animated films from around the world. Back in our neck of the woods, starting on Sunday, January 2nd, Grand Illusion Cinema has Annemarie Jacir's SALT OF THIS SEA. It stars poet and Tony winner Suheir Hammad as a young woman who travels from New York to Palestine to collect an inheritance and finds the account was frozen after the creation of Israel, leaving her increasingly determined to fight for what is hers. Now's also a good time to catch up with big holiday/award nominated releases such as THE KING'S SPEECH, which is now at the Guild 45th and elsewhere around town. Whatever you're watching, we here at The Crow wish you all a safe holiday and a very Happy New Year!
