This comes straight from the latest Northwest Film Forum newsletter:
Northwest Film Forum and New Yorker Films have partnered up for a benefit for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. We're showing Jim Jarmusch's classic Down by Law in our cinemas Friday, Sept 16 -- Sunday, Sept 18 at 7 & 9:15 daily. Tickets are $10 minimum, but please pay as much as you can ($30? $15? $10.25?) as 100% of the proceeds go to the Red Cross. Advance tickets will be available starting tomorrow, through our website and by calling our ticketing line at 1.800.838.3006. As always, tickets can also be purchased at the door 30 min before showtime. Starring Tom Waits, John Lurie and Roberto Benigni, Law follows three down-on-their-luck losers who meet up in a Louisiana prison and features stunning cinematography from Robby Muller, a great lounge-jazz score from Lurie and Jarmusch's signature deadpan sense of humor. Bring as many people as you can to a great, great film that hasn't played Seattle in years--what Jarmusch calls a "neo-noir beat comedy"--and help those who truly need it. $10 times several hundred people can go a long way, so let's pack the cinemas and help Louisiana when it needs us the most.
