The actual Seattle Queer Film Festival doesn’t officially kick off until October 13th (and then runs through the 23rd both online and in area cinemas) but Three Dollar Bill Cinema is offering up an ‘appetizer’ for this year’s festival with a sneak preak screening of the film PLEASE BABY PLEASE by filmmaker Amanda Kramer. It’s a fun lurid melodrama and a colorful noir about a newlywed couple living in a tough neighborhood on the Lower East Side of New York City in the 1950s.
It stars Andrea Riseborough and Harry Melling with a special appearance from Demi Moore. PLEASE BABY PLEASE won Outstanding North American Narrative Feature at OUTFEST and more recently (and more locally) was the Closing Night film at the North Bend Film Festival. It’s screening at the charming Ark Lodge Cinema in Columbia City at 7pm this coming Wednesday, October 5th. The screening is free if you already have a Seattle Queer Film Festival pass and you can buy passes at: https://www.goelevent.com/ThreeDollarBillCinema/Pass/Sale
