Media New in the Seattle Weekly Film Section: Showtimes in NYC for the Week of July 21

I’ve resisted pointing out, so far, that every movie review in the Seattle Weekly is now written in New York. (Erstwhile film editor Brian Miller is still about, but now he’s writing Northwesterly prose about “the mud puckering beneath my feet on the shoreline trail” for the news section.) They’re also being assigned at 200 words or fewer, which is kind of impressive.
But this week? Whoever’s in charge of the film section now (it isn’t made clear on the masthead) imported a Village Voice review by Drew Tillman complete with showtimes for its New York premiere at the IFC Center in July:
Making its debut as a midnight movie, The Beales of Grey Gardens is essentially leftovers: footage from the original shoot that, not surprisingly, offers more of the same and lacks the first film’s sense of revelation.
In Seattle, Grey Gardens is making its debut as a regular old movie, Friday-Sun 7 and 9 pm at Northwest Film Forum.
