But when will it open in Seattle?

(Sorry I missed you all yesterday; I was out of the office, doing among other things an interview with Gary Oldman, who visited Seattle to talk about “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” Fascinating, thoughtful man, and I’ll have the interview written up soon, but just wanted to share that he was wearing a black velvet blazer over a dark V-neck sweater and T-shirt, with a black silk handkerchief drooping elegantly from the jacket’s pocket. Best interview outfit I’ve seen in some time, I must say. For those wondering what gentlemen of the movies typically wear for interviews, I can share from recent personal experience that Colin Firth wears an elegant, simple dark suit, no tie; Jon Hamm wears a plaid shirt and jeans; and “The Artist” director Michel Hazanavicius an impressively academic-looking-yet-stylish tweed blazer.)
Lots of news pouring in about yearend awards: The Los Angeles Film Critics gave “The Descendants” its top vote, Critic’s Choice awards named “The Artist” and “Hugo” as co-winners; and the American Film Institute issued its alphabetical Top 10: “Bridesmaids,” “The Descendants,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Help,” “Hugo,” “J. Edgar,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball,” “The Tree of Life,” and “War Horse.” Meanwhile, I’m getting lots of questions from readers wondering why they’re reading reviews for “The Artist,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and other movies all over the place, but are not seeing these movies in Seattle. As often happens, many of the year’s most-buzzed movies are opening only in New York and Los Angeles, expanding to Seattle and other cities a few weeks later. Here’s when to expect some of these; note that these dates are current but eminently changeable. (If anyone ever has a question about when a movie is opening here, just ask and I’ll try to find out; sometimes it’s hard to find the info online.)
Dec. 16: “Young Adult”
Dec. 23: “The Artist,” “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” “A Dangerous Method”
Dec. 25: “War Horse”
Jan. 6: “Pariah,” “In the Land of Blood and Honey”
Jan. 13: “The Iron Lady”
Jan. 20: “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” “Carnage”
