Found Footage Fest tickets still available

FoundFootageFestival

Joe and Nick are coming to Seattle and bringing their Found Footage Fest back to Central Cinema, this time for two nights. In the past we have had to squeeze three back-to-back shows into one night to accommodate their hectic tour schedule. This year we get to spread it out a little over both Thursday and Friday December 4th & 5th. Joe and Nick are so funny it literally hurts to go to their show. Vol. 7 is their latest installment of new material dug up from the FFF cave. These shows always sell out but there is still some room at all three showtimes. Don’t let your procrastinating self miss out this year, go get some tickets now before its too late………

Bonebat Comedy of Horrors Festival for 2015

Seattle’s 5th “Comedy of Horrors” Film Fest, presenting features, shorts & live music, to be hosted 4/25/15 by The BoneBat Show!

The “Comedy of Horrors” Film Festival is the world’s only film fest dedicated to the Horror Comedy genre. Entering it’s fifth year, it has already landed in MovieMaker Magazine’s Top Five Coolest Comedy Film Fest’s WORLD WIDE! The past couple of fests have been super fun and here is your chance to get it in early to help Bonebat go large.

The “Comedy of Horrors” Film Fest is a one-day (until now) entertainment extravaganza which includes feature length films and shorts from around the world, all featuring some mix of comedy, horror, or horror-comedy. Somewhere in the middle of all that, there’s live, independent music. And prizes galore, courtesy of our generous sponsors! Not the colored pixels that pass for rewards in some circles. The “Comedy of Horrors” gives away real, physical items of value that you can take home and enjoy. If funded, this festival will take place on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at Central Cinema in Seattle, WA.

Summer Matinee Madness

Recently we had Kevin and Sean, the guys who founded DealFlicks, stop by the theater on their way to Canada. After seeing what they do at DealFlicks we signed up Central Cinema. All summer we will be offering Summer Matinee Madness of 3-for-1 admission to our weekend matinees all the way through September. Now you can duck out of the sun for an air conditioned break at the movies and bring two friends along for free. What a nice way to split a pitcher! Check out our theater page on DealFlicks and score some sweet deals.
