Upcoming Movies

Week 5/27 through 6/2

This has been quite an adventurous week of sitting quietly in the dark.  Week 1 of the Seattle International Film Festival was a 7-for-7 day movie watching experience, oddly enough highlighted by movies outside the festival.  Tonight still holds tickets to X-Men: Apocalyse, and the week ahead seems quite amply filled with theater attending as well.
