What’s your favorite movie, Mr./Ms. Mayor?

Here’s a way to liven up a campaign season: PubliCola asked a number of the 2013 candidates for mayor to choose a movie for the “Mayoral Movies” series held at Northwest Film Forum — and to show up to introduce and explain their choice. Five candidates, including the incumbent, took them up on the offer, and the results will screen this weekend. Here’s the schedule, and their choices:

Friday, July 5, 8 p.m.: “To Kill a Mockingbird,” introduced by Mayor Mike McGinn

Saturday, July 6, 8 p.m.: “All the President’s Men,” introduced by Greenwood neighborhood activist Kate Martin

Sunday, July 7, 5 p.m.: “Papillon,” introduced by City Councilman Bruce Harrell

Sunday, July 7, 8 p.m.: “The Wind That Shakes the Barley,” introduced by State Senator Ed Murray¬† (all politics aside, I love this movie)

Monday, July 8, 8 p.m.: “Buddy: The Rise and Fall of America’s Most Notorious Mayor,” introduced by Peter Steinbrueck

Should you wish to attend: Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave., Seattle; www.nwfilmforum.org or 206-267-5380. Individual tickets are $10 ($7 students/seniors), or you can buy a series pass for $30.
