“I Know Where I’m Going!” . . . to SAM, tonight

Should you be a classic-movie fan with nothing to do tonight but stay home and watch TCM, here’s a suggestion: Head down to Seattle Art Museum for a special screening of the Michael Powell/Emeric Pressburger film “I Know Where I’m Going!,” presented by Powell’s widow, the Oscar-winning film editor Thelma Schoonmaker. This 1945 charmer, about a headstrong young bride-to-be (Wendy Hiller, star of 1939’s “Pygmalion” and an Oscar winner for 1958’s “Separate Tables”) who finds herself trapped in a remote Scottish village on the way to her wedding, is rarely shown on the big screen, and Schoonmaker, who’s come to town before with Powell’s films, is a delightful storyteller and historian. (She’ll present the great “The Red Shoes” tomorrow night.) The movie screens at 7:30 tonight at SAM’s Plestcheeff Auditorium; tickets are $10 at the door ($7 for SAM members). You’ll be glad you went.
