In light of coronavirus news and restrictions on gatherings put in place by Governor Inslee, Washington movie theaters have closed through the end of March at least. We know, we're sad too! While we all practice social distancing in order to help flatten the curve of the virus, we'd suggest checking out our calendar of upcoming livestreamed events. Stay safe out there, and check back here in a few weeks!

Rocketman

Rocketman opens with a shot of Elton John (Taron Egerton) dressed in full stage regalia bursting unannounced into an AA meeting. “My name is Elton Hercules John,” he says flatly, “and I am an alcoholic, a sex addict, and bulimic.” This conceit—that the entire film is narrated by Elton John from the context of a group therapy session—says quite a bit about Rocketman’s intentions. Rock biopics tend to focus a little too heavily on the “creative process,” acting almost like VH1 Classic Albums reenactments and estranging laypeople who might not necessarily care how their favorite records were made. But Rocketman leans too far in the opposite direction. You came to learn about how Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was recorded? Well, fuck you. Rocketman doesn’t only presuppose that its audience doesn’t know about Elton John’s music, it assumes they wouldn’t even care. by Morgan Troper
