In celebration of the release of Christopher Nolan's new space epic Interstellar, SIFF Cinema Egyptian presents a weekend dedicated to classic films that explore man's desire for space travel: Alien, Close Encounters, 2001, Apollo 13, Forbidden Planet, Serenity, and more! Plus, re-experience Nolan's "inner space" masterpiece Inception on the big screen.
SIFF Cinema Egyptian | Exclusive presentation
Robert Alman is one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema. SIFF Cinema Egyptian celebrates his legacy with the new documentary Altman, a selection of never-before-seen short films, a lobby poster exhibit, and special $5 shows of seven of the director's career-defining films: M*A*S*H, Nashville, McCabe & Mrs Miller, Popeye, The Player, Short Cuts, and Gosford Park.
Don't miss these special Monday night encore screenings of acclaimed features that may not have played at SIFF Cinema when they were first released, but that certainly should not be missed.
Great performances from The National Theatre in London and The Royal Shakespeare Company stunningly captured in high-definition before a live audience and presented on the big screen. Plus other fine arts programming.
The long-time tradion of Midnight Movies return to the Egyptian with Midnight Adrenaline every Friday and Saturday. This October, we kick it off with a special screening sing along as part of the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, followed by some of our scream season favorites, and a special Halloween Night with The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
SIFF and HBO present a collection of thought-provoking, challenging, and entertaining documentaries not yet seen by television audiences. Admission is FREE.
