Preserve Me A Seat – West Sac Showing

Did you know there is a place that shows classic and independent movies on the big screen in West Sac? Neither did I. These cool film screenings take place in the old ILWU labor union hall on F Street (on the other side of the river). Movies run Fridays at 7 or 9:30 p.m. (check the schedule) and admission is just $5, unless otherwise noted. You can view their upcoming calendar here.

Two future films that caught my eye:

His Girl Friday – What better way to start Valentine’s weekend than with this fast-talking, screwball comedy from director Howard Hawks. This is the film that current directors always require their leads to watch in order to perfect that comic timing and chemistry. (7 p.m., Friday Feb 13)

Preserve Me A Seat – Local historian William Burg will be introducing this documentary about saving our beautiful, historic movie palaces. The movie also delves into issues that face modern cities such as finding new uses for historic structures or on the flip side, tearing down old buildings to put up things like high-end lofts or apartments. This film is presented in partnership with the Sacramento Old City Association. (check listing for time, Friday March 20)

See you at the movies!
