National Theatre Live, Frankenstein

Lee Miller as Frankenstein- Thursday, October 30th 8:00pm
Cumberbatch as Frankenstein-Sunday, November 9th 1:00pm

National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.
The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.
Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.Tickets $20 for General, $18 for Jr/Sr/Student. Group Discounts available. Tickets Online and at the Box Office

Bolshoi Ballet Coming this Fall to the Vashon Theatre

Bolshoi Ballet THE PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER
Date Sunday November 23rd, 2014 1:00pm
Running time 2h30

Music Cesare Pugni
Libretto Jean-Henry Saint-Georges and Marius Petipa
Choreography, sets and costumes Pierre Lacotte

Cast Svetlana Zakharova (Aspicia), Ruslan Skvortsov (Lord Wilson) and Nina Kaptsova (Ramze, Aspicia's slave)

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life.

The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.

With its exotic setting, impressive parades, spectacular variations and crowd scenes, this grand 19th-century Orientalist fantasy is one of the most remarkable productions in the Bolshoi’s repertoire. The main roles are here danced by Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova, Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov.

(Ballet recorded live on November 25th, 2012)
Comedy Night

35th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition

Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday November 26th at 7:30 pm
Tickets $17 for General $15 for Senior/Students
The comedians performing come from not only the Seattle area but from across the US and truly internationally - Canada, Australia, UK, Slovenia, and even Portlandia.
"Within weeks of winning the 2012 Seattle Comedy Competition, I met with every network there is besides PBS and the Lifetime Channel. Everyone from network CEO's to casting directors. I got to pitch a sitcom pilot to Comedy Central. "
That's comedian Michael Malone, talking on the phone from his hotel room in Houston Texas, where he is headlining the JokeJoint Comedy Showcase, a new iteration of one of Houston's heritage comedy clubs.
"800 comedians entered the contest, you had to submit video and all that stuff, and they whittled it down to 33, and I was honored just to be a part of that 33. Then it tiers down to 10. Then it tiers down to a top five, and then you have a winner. Every time it tiered down, I was just honored to be a part of it."
It all starts on Wednesday, November 5 2014 with an Opening Night Gala at the historic Columbia City Theater in Seattle, where 16 of the 32 chosen participants begin their run toward the championship. After 23 shows in 26 days in 19 venues around Western Washington, the winner will take the crown from reigning champ Zoltan Kaszas.
The finalists of the Seattle International Comedy Competition will have performed a minimum of 17 shows, been judged by 61 different judges, and received 427 separate scores. All while fully dressed. No wonder Hollywood seeks them out.

This is the REAL "Last Comic Standing."

Bolshoi Ballet-THE LEGEND OF LOVE
Captured Live-NEW PRODUCTION
Thursday, December 4th 7:00pm
Running time 3hr

Music Arif Melikov
Libretto Nâzım Hikmet
Original choreography Yuri Grigorovich

Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

The royal apartments of Queen Mekhmene Banu are plunged into mourning – her young sister, Princess Shyrin, is dying. The Princess will only be saved if the Queen gives Shyrin her beauty. The Queen decides to sacrifice herself, but later regrets her action when she is disfigured and Shyrin falls in love with the Queen’s own lover, the painter Ferkhad.

This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.

Featuring dance movements, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.

Best Rural Movie Theatre 2010- Seattle Weekly

Vashon Island dances to its own beat. Unlike the Bainbridge, Bremerton, or even Kingston ferries, if you walk onto the one departing Fauntleroy for the southwesterly isle, you're sort of stranded. Even if you bring a bike, the hill you're confronted with at the onset of the three-mile ride to Vashon's tiny commercial strip is so daunting that you'll be thumbing it in no time. But once you make it there, it's worth it, in large part because of the Vashon Theatre. Sure, they show movies—really interesting documentaries, charming indies, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at midnight. There's something for everyone, a sentiment amplified by the fact that the theater also hosts live music and theatrical productions—even an Oscar-night party, replete with a red carpet and snazzily dressed revelers. It's not just a great place to take in a flick; it's a community anchor, and a sure sign that the silver-screen experience can be preserved for as long as people are willing to breathe ingenuity and life into it. —Mike Seely
