Fifteen years ago a group of Tacomans decided that indie cinema could flourish in this town. They’ve been proved right. The Grand Cinema, which reopened doors on April 18, 1997 as Pierce County’s only non-profit independent movie theater, is now celebrating 15 years of offering art-house, foreign and indie film to Tacoma, plus creating local events like the Tacoma Film Festival and 72-Hour Film Festival.
To celebrate, The Grand will offer 15 days of movie deals leading up to the anniversary. From April 4-18 there’ll be concession specials, $5 admission days, free member movies on Mondays and more, plus an official party on April 18.
For more details on the deals see the website or call The Grand Cinema, 606 S. Fawcett Ave., Tacoma. 253-593-4474, www.grandcinema.com
