What's a good source to find out if a film will be playing in Seattle later in the year? Obviously I'd like to focus on smaller films that may not get distribution, but how do I figure that out?

Use our online guide! Everything that has a firm or estimated Seattle opening date says so at the bottom of the web version of our capsules reviews.

There are some movies that have distributors but no estimated opening dates yet; I haven't included that info because it's just a guess. You can use IMDB's "company credits" to find out the name of the US theatrical distributor, but you have to know something about how big the distributor is to figure out whether the movie will definitely open in Seattle. Not everything from Strand Releasing or New Yorker Films will make it, for example. Everything from The Weinstein Company will. Hope that helps! Do you have a particular film you're wondering about?

From your list, I'm seeing Vexille, Red Awn, and the Last Mistress.

Other pics from me and my friends this weekend: The Edge of Heaven (two people who saw it loved it), Mother of Tears, Mermaid (everyone is seeing it), Love and Honor, Terra, and The Fall.
