A Special Valentine's Day showing of HAROLD AND MAUDE

Has Valentine's Day got you down because you're single and everyone else in the world seems to be in a relationship?  Couples, are you in a panic because you don't know what to do for Valentine's Day?  I have the perfect solution: come see Harold and Maude at the Uptown with the Seattle Cinema Club!

From the website:

A love story that transcends the ages, Hal Ashby's outsider classic Harold and Maude shows the relationship between the faux-suicidal young man Harold (Bud Cort in an iconic role) and his unlikely kindred spirit, goofy octogenarian Maude (the unstoppable Ruth Gordon).

At this special Valentine's Day event we'll also have tragic-romantic candy hearts, a pre-show Cat Stevens sing along, and prizes for the couples with the biggest age gap!

Surprise your sweetheart with a Valentine message on the BIG SCREEN in the slideshow before Harold and Maude. Submit your message (30 words or less) to [masked] by Tuesday, February 12.

Tickets are $11 general admission and $6 for SIFF members.  Senior and youth tickets (under 20 and over 65) can be bought at the door for $10 each.  Passes and vouchers are valid at the box office.

NOTE: THIS IS ALWAYS A POPULAR EVENT, SO BUY TICKETS AHEAD OF TIME TO GUARANTEE A SEAT, EITHER BY VISITING THE SIFF BOX OFFICE OR THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE: http://www.siff.net/cinema/detail.aspx?FID=261&id=27931 THERE IS A $1.25 FEE PER TICKET, UP TO $5 PER ORDER, FOR TICKETS PURCHASED OVER THE INTERNET OR BY PHONE.  Or, if you like to live dangerously, as I do, I can give you a better idea of how it's selling as we get closer to the date.

Please arrive by 6:30 and check in with me in the lobby before heading into the theater.  I'll probably have the first few people grab seats in the middle so that most of us can sit together.  Once the credits have ended, we will meet back up in the lobby and let people use the restroom before heading out to a fine dining establishment place with food and drink to discuss the film.

For people arriving by car, SIFF has a free parking lot that can be used after 6.  Just show your ticket at the box office window on Thursday and ask for a parking pass to put on your dashboard.  The parking lot is on Republican St., across the street from the Safeway parking lot and directly behind the Mediterranean Inn.  For people arriving by bus, Bus 1, 2, 8, 15, 32 and the D line all stop near the Uptown.

Hope to see you there!

BONUS! Roger Ebert's notorious one-and-a-half star review of the film (his readers give it three-and-a-half): http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19720101/REVIEWS/201010313

    We saw it last year, but we didn't feel the need to see it again this year. It was a lot of fun; I hadn't seen it before.

    Brilliant movie, fun crowd, fun occasion. Only spoiled by the occasional LOUD TALKERS in the audience who forgot they weren't at home in front of their TVs.

    Looks like there should be no problem getting tickets day-of-show for this, but it will be busy. Remember, if there is a line, I'll meet you in the lobby on the way to the theater.

    Can't make it but it's a great classic. I saw it when it opened years ago. Ruth Gordon is a hoot (remember her in "Rosemary's Baby"? Have fun.
