Friday July 8 – Thursday July 14

Featured Film:

Singin’ in the Rain at the Lincoln Square and the Cinemark Federal Way

There’s other good stuff out there this week: Ponyo, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Love & Friendship, Jaws, A Cat in the Brain, The Wailing, Messiah of Evil and the premiere of Right Now, Wrong Then on Thursday. But Singin’ in the Rain is the only movie out this week that has a legitimate claim to being the Best Movie of All-Time. It’s playing as part of Cinemark’s Classics series, which means digital presentation, Sunday and Wednesday only. But it doesn’t matter. It’s the most watchable movie ever made, regardless of how many times you’ve seen it or what format it’s presented in. If you haven’t seen it (what!), you have no excuse. I’ve seen it dozens of times, including a mere two weeks ago, on the couch with a sick four-year old. And we’ll probably go to see it again this weekend.
