SIFF SIFF 2008: Day 22 Recomendations
posted by June 12 at 10:50 AMon
Your choices are fairly simple today. See the magnificent The Secret of the Grain (3:30 pm at the Egyptian) in that sweet spot between lunch and dinner. You should be out by 6 pm, when you can either get an early look at Frozen River (7 pm at Pacific Place)—which is probably more suited to this June, weather-wise, than the middle of August, when it’s scheduled to open theatrically in Seattle—or take a break to eat (Marrakesh has couscous, though it’s obviously not Tunisian).
Next, head to Seattle Center for the fascinating doc Fairytale of Kathmandu (9:30 pm at SIFF Cinema). Unless you plan to see that Saturday morning, in which case the shot-in-Seattle Visioneers (9:30 pm at the Egyptain) or the low-fi sci-fi epic Apollo 54 (9:30 pm at the Harvard Exit) are acceptable substitutes.
Also, Alexander Nevsky accompanied by the Seattle Symphony starts tonight (7:30 pm at Benaroya Hall)—but there are several performances through the weekend. See the Seattle Symphony box office for details.
