Our Friend The Grand Illusion Cinema

Fans of Kung Fu Grindhouse:
Our favorite theater in Seattle needs our help! The Grand Illusion is a volunteer run, non-profit cinema in the U-District. As such they operate dangerously close tot he bottom line, and if they run out of money, they may have to close their doors.

The Grand Illusion is the only cinema in town that offers such a unique mix of films from trashy to classic to foreign to yes, even kung-fu. Simply put, it's amazing stuff you won't find anywhere else in Seattle.
On top of this they have the best ticket prices in town. You can see almost any movie for just 8 bucks, 7 bucks for students, and if you become a member, tickets are just five dollars! Becoming a member starts at just 30 bucks for a whole year.
We don't know what else to say to encourage you to help keep this totally unique and awesome cinema going, it would be a huge hit to local movie fans if they closed down. As supporters of all of Kung Fu Grindhouse's shenanigans, we think you understand the value of something like this.

We're going to be there this Tuesday July 27th to watch John Water's trashy classic Female Trouble at 9pm. In addition to our own ticket prices, we'll donate an extra five bucks to The Grand Illusion for every certifiable Kung Fu Grindhouse fan who buys a ticket to watch Female Trouble with us.
