Columbia City Cinema

Seattle's Coolest Neighborhood Theater

Almost February? Already? Yes, and we are going to usher it in with three of the hottest movies ever, Slumdog Millionaire, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and Taken, a new suspense thriller starring Liam Neeson. The first two you know. The third is the story of a man whose daughter is kidnapped and who possesses very specific skills on how to hunt people down. Extremely suspenseful and well done with, thank goodness, no graphic violence. All three will be showing through Thursday, 2/5.

Gran Torino heads out this Thursday, 1/29. Stop in and see if here before it leaves.

See you at the movies.

Only three days left to place a bid!

The Columbia City Gallery is hosting a silent auction by secret bid of Gallery artists' Work from January 21 -31, 2009. This is a secret, silent auction, which means you won't know what other people have bid. Artists have given each artwork a minimum bid, and you can bid any amount above the minimum bid. You may make bids in person at the Columbia City Gallery (4864 Rainier Ave S), on the phone by calling 760-9843 or via our online silent auction gallery.

Columbia City in the blogossiphere

Amber at the Rainier Valley Post says she doesn't want direct links from the Wikli's blogossiphere over her concern that gossip just isn't her brand. We still encourage you to check out her blog.
