Friday July 15 – Thursday July 21

Featured Film:

David Lynch and Cary Grant at the Seattle Art Museum

I suppose Fire Walk with Me and The Philadelphia Story go together too well for it to be entirely a coincidence that they’re playing on consecutive nights this week at the Art Museum. One is a nightmarish vision of an insular, thoroughly misogynistic  community, packed with quirky, lunatic performances, featuring a healthy amount of substance abuse and a deeply self-deluded father’s seriously messed-up relationship with his daughter. The other is the big screen prequel to a celebrated television series. Hearthfires and holocausts indeed. We talked about Fire Walk with Me earlier this year on the first episode of The Frances Farmer Show.
