THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

MARC RIBOT LIVE: THE KID
NWFC & SEARCH PARTY PRESENT
DIRECTOR: CHARLIE CHAPLIN
US, 1921

From stints playing guitar with the likes of Wilson Pickett, Carla Thomas, Chuck Berry, and other legends, to membership in John Lurie’s Lounge Lizards, to collaborations with John Zorn and an unshakable association with Manhattan’s downtown avant-garde scene, to high-profile work with Tom Waits and Elvis Costello, acclaimed instrumentalist and composer Marc Ribot has been just about everywhere you could look at one time or another. Of late you’ll encounter his work quite frequently playing behind your favorite movies, with noteworthy work on films such as WALK THE LINE, THE DEPARTED, and WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. Tonight, Ribot will perform his live accompaniment for a screening of THE KID, Chaplin’s first feature-length film, a sincere and heartwarming tale of the Tramp’s rescue of an abandoned child. (68 mins.)

Special admission: $18 general, $14 Silver Screen Club members


Ribot will also perform a short set before the film.

Sponsored by Music Millennium, KMHD, and MusicFest NW.

2012 BRITISH ARROW AWARDS

This annual juried survey (36th edition), formerly called the British Television Advertising Awards, never fails to deliver an entertaining mix of commercial creativity of the highest order. Drawn from submissions across the UK’s multimedia advertising platforms—from traditional broadcast and cinema to new online mediums—trademark British wit and gleeful innovation shine through. Whether touching drama or high-tech dazzle, low-budget invention or mind-boggling production, this eclectic collection of prizewinners do have something in common: they are all delightfully short and inspired. Included in the mix (not aired in the U.S.) are gems produced by Wieden+Kennedy’s London office. Thanks to the British Arrows, London, for this creative crash course on the marriage of advertising and film, art and commerce. (75 mins.)

TESS
DIRECTOR: ROMAN POLANSKI
FRANCE, 1979

Polanski’s sweeping version of Thomas Hardy’s classic novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” has undergone a glorious new digital restoration by Pathé, approved by Polanski himself. His first film after fleeing the US in 1977, Polanski undertook TESS in memory of his murdered wife Sharon Tate, who was drawn to the story. Seventeen-year-old Nastassia Kinski stars in the tragic story of a beautiful young peasant girl—“more sinned against than sinning”—who decides to flee her Normandy village to escape the clutches of her distant rich cousin. Winner of the French César for Best Film and Academy Awards for cinematography, art direction, and costumes, TESS is “the familiar Polanski tale of an innocent adrift in a hostile, chaotic environment, though it is realized here with more subtlety and sympathy than he had managed in a decade.”—Dave Kehr (163 mins.)
