Hype!: 20th Anniversary Screening

Saturday, March 11 at 7pm

Drop into the Pacific NW in the early ‘90s and watch the underground music scene explode into a “grunge” media frenzy for a subculture-hungry world. “Hype!” follows the music from a few bands playing with their friends, to Sub Pop’s brilliant exploitation of “the Seattle Sound,” to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” hitting #1 on the charts. Questions of money, authenticity, and fame arise as “grunge fashion” hits the runways and a mass migration of wanna-be bands saturates Seattle. The Northwest experience is one of humor, loss, and epic irony. “Hype!” has live performances by Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, and more. Seattle’s own Naked Giants will perform at 7pm before the film.

Ghost in the Shell

Tuesday, March 14th at 8pm

A female cybernetic government agent, Major Motoko Kusanagi, and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of “The Puppet Master,” a mysterious and threatening computer virus capable of infiltrating human hosts. Together, with her fellow agents from Section 9, they embark on a high-tech race against time to capture the omnipresent entity. “Ghost in the Shell” took the world by storm in the mid-90’s, exhibiting a new dimension of anime with unprecedented, mesmerizing cinematic expression. Seamlessly merging traditional animation with the latest computer graphic imagery, this stunning sci-fi spectacle challenged the boundaries of mainstream animation.
