Grand Illusion Cinema information
Totally unique! Far from being a reincarnated gilded-age movie house, the Grand Illusion sits in an old dentist's office. Run by volunteers and passionately not-for-profit, it has a cherished national reputation among independent movie guerrillas for its director retrospectives and other cool, under-the-radar series. It also hosts its own film festival, facetiously called STIFF (Seattle's True Independent Film Festival).
