Also happening at the Capitol Hill venue is a late night showing of Streets of Fire, the NWFF has become the new home for Women in Film Seattle’s: The Second Tuesday (the event happens Tuesday night – natch) and finally Thursday night is the Festival of (In)appropriation with filmmaker Josh Hite in attendance.

SIFF CINEMA’s main event this week is the opening of the new French film Stranger By The Lake. Held over due to popular demand is Maidentrip , Walking The Camino and the National Theatre Live’s performance of Coriolanus. Sunday’s Doc Brunch series brings about Girl Rising (with cupcakes!)

Other notable local movie action includes the final weekend of the Seattle Jewish Film Festival. Cool stuff at Sundance Cinemas include a documentary about the wonderful Elaine Stritch called, appropriately, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me and Tim’s Vermeer. Down the street at The Seven Gables Cinema is the new Romanian film Child’s Pose and last but certainly not least The Seattle Art Museum’s film series The Golden Age of Italian Cinema concludes Thursday night with Frederico Fellini’s spectacular Amarcord. If you didn’t buy a series pass, tickets are available at the door.

As you can see, Seattle offers an over-abundance of cinematic delight and there’s plenty more going on! Hopefully you'll take advantage of all these great opportunities and be sure to stock up at Scarecrow Video to enhance this week’s viewing pleasures.
