Friday November 4 – Thursday November 10

Featured Film:

Jean Cocteau at the Seattle Art Museum

A number of high-profile awards season art house movies are now playing on Seattle Screens: Certain WomenThe Handmaiden and this week’s opener Moonlight. Additionally, smaller well-recieved movies are out as well, including a pair of films about suicidal newscaster Christine Chubbuck (Robert Greene’s documentary Kate Plays Christine and Antonio Campos’s biopic Christine) and under-the-radar favorites Uncle Kent 2 and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. There’s even a fine array of older movies: from Chaplin’s The Great Dictator to and pair of films starring The Who to the black and white version of last year’s Best Film Mad Max: Fury Road. But my pick for the best of the week is SAM’s 35mm presentation of Jean Cocteau’s mysterious, romantic, inimitable 1948 adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. If you missed it when the Grand Illusion played it this past April, you have another chance this Wednesday only.
