|Now playing through January 24 — The Great Debaters (showtimes)
On Friday, January 25, we open the kooky, off-beat comedy, Juno, starring an amazingly appealing newcomer, Ellen Page, as a young woman unexpectedly pregnant. Roger Ebert named it Best Movie of the Year and others have called it "a thing of grace and beauty" and "this year's Little Miss Sunshine". So get on down here for the time of your life.
|Columbia City Theater is Seattle's oldest historic Vaudeville Theater, complete with recording studio & Hendrix Electric Lounge.

Columbia City land use
The City's Department of Planning and Development has published a notice of application for a proposed rezone at the northwest corner of S Alaska & Martin Luther King Jr Way S. Seattle Housing Authority seeks to rezone the corner lot from residential Lowrise 4 (37' heights) to Neighborhood Commercial 1-40 (40' heights), including a pedestrian overlay. SHA has requested the rezone to facilitate the development of ground-level commercial space next to the Columbia City light rail station. You can become a party of record by contacting vog.elttaes|crp#vog.elttaes|crp and referencing project 3008163.

Join the C-City Runners!
|Started by a few close friends (who also happen to be Columbia City neighbors) C-City Runners was created out of a need for a low-key and highly social running club with a focus on enjoying the experience of running. A running club where being competitive with yourself is encouraged, but where anyone who has a passion for running or an interest in getting started would find a supportive and welcoming crowd.
Our first group run is scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2008 at 8:00 AM. Meet in front of the Columbia City Bakery. Find out more.
