Happy People: A Year in the Taiga: Documentary or Poetry?

March 18th, 2013 | by Zach Cheney

The film "Happy People: A Year in the Taiga" follows a year in the lives of sable trappers in a remote Bakhtian village. Filmmakers Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov present the narrative as a slice-of-life drama, an everyday epic for which the camera crew is merely along for the ride. Happy People plays at the Grand Cinema one night only, on Tuesday, March

Amour: Moving Emotions Without Moving the Camera

February 18th, 2013 | by Zach Cheney

Amour doesn’t romanticize or glorify the story of an elderly Parisian couple as their life undergoes the most radical and yet inevitable of changes. Instead, it offers a take on a dark episode of life as complex as such episodes usually are

Give Tacoma

November 27th is #GivingTuesday, the most recent opportunity in a growing list of consumer possibilities foisted upon us right after Thanksgiving.

Stare Into the New Faces of Independent Film

August 17th, 2012 | by Katy Evans

One thing among many to love about the Grand Cinema: they quietly and reliably continue to carve out inimitable independent film opportunities. This weekend is no exception and I would bet that since Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces in Independent Film is now in its third year at the Grand, you (like me) have still probably never made it. But you can change this trend - attend, discover, maybe even meet the future of movie making. Check out eight film trailers and then hit the Grand. Start tonight!
