Another exciting film series starts this Monday night at 7pm at The Paramount Theater. Every Monday night through February 10th its one great silent film after another for Trader Joe’s Silent Movie Mondays. All of the pictures will be accompanied by Jim Riggs on the Wurlitzer Organ. This week’s film is Sunrise!

NORTHWEST FILM FORUM Our pals on Capitol Hill have a couple of cool exclusives opening on Friday for week long runs. First off is Alexander Sokurov’s latest Faust. Also showing is Jon Moritsugu’s first film in a decade, Pig Death Machine, which proves our pal Jon is as weird and provocative as ever!

SIFF CINEMA UPTOWN It’s been a while since John Sayles had a new movie and, guess what, his latest film is screening for one week only. Check out Go For Sisters at the Lower Queen Anne venue. Also SIFF related is the Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Film Festival. It’s an annual event that shows at the Cinerama. Tickets are sold out for the initial screenings but you can still buy them for the encore show on Sunday that shows at the Uptown.

Down the street at THE GRAND ILLUSION CINEMA is the final installment in the Evangelion series. Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo plays through Thursday. Most nights it is the English dubbed version but the original Japanese version screens on Monday. Click on the cinema link for details. Also at the GI is a new 70s style horror film called Here Comes the Devil that plays as part of the cinema’s late night programming. Finally, the Sprocket Society begins another super-fun series of retro matinee programs on Saturday afternoons. Series passes are available.

As usual Seattle offers an abundance of cinematic delights so hopefully you'll have time to visit a cinema or two and be sure to stock up at Scarecrow Video to enhance this week’s viewing pleasures.
