The Flick is a comedy about a minimum wage crew working in an old 35mm movie theater in Massachusetts. But here’s the twist, you are seated on the stage, and they are out in the seats doing their (comedic acting) jobs sweeping up popcorn, selling tickets and running the projector. Tickets are $20 and seating is very limited (because you will be on the stage on what I have been assured are comfortable, cushioned chairs). The shows run for the next two weeks on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with 2pm matinees on Sundays at Aux Dog Theater Nob Hill (3011 Monte Vista Blvd NE). For more information see auxdogtheatre.org.
The new paintings by Jesse Littlebird can best be expressed in his own words: “A dream. I saw a light open in the valley, and from the skies a red rain came down from the mountains, my mouth closed. The beautiful thoughts of destined endlessness. Death and taxes. The dawn of man. The evening of the living in that valley, tear your heart out and throw it to the heavens. The cat dug her claws in my back and spoke in my ear: kukani.” Kukani (Red) Paintings on the Wall opens this Sunday at Dialogue Brewing (1501 1st NW) at 6pm.
