It's an exciting day when your favorite local nonprofit cinema launches their own blog, right? Of course it is! I know you can't wait to peek behind the curtain and learn all about how and what we do - and why.

I speak on behalf of everyone who loves The Grand when I say, here, on our new blog, is where we share the love. The love of film, of creativity, of filmmaking, of community.

Here where we'll: 
  • go in depth about the films that we can't wait to see, 
  • post local reviews and responses to our featured movies, 
  • share all the details of upcoming events, 
  • make sure you stay in the know about ways to get involved, and
  • keep you up to date about any new and exciting changes coming to The Grand. We always have something up our various sleeves
brooklynAnd here you can ask us questions!

Weird Elephant presents Dangerous Men

Our newest monthly film series features Dangerous Men, an instant cult classic 26 years in the making that can only be described as "mind-boggling, virtuoso WTF-ery." 

The Weird Elephant series presents new indie genre and future-cult classics on the last Friday and Saturday of every month, paired expertly with a featured Northwest brewery. Come palate cleanse after your very probably family-filled Thanksgiving. Learn more about Dangerous Men and Weird Elephant here.

We look forward to seeing you at any and all of these amazing screenings and from all of us at The Grand, we wish you and your families a very happy Thanksgiving. 

See you at the movies!
