72 Hour Film Fest at The Grand

The Grand Cinema’s annual 72 Hour Film Competition is on again, with 30 teams running around Tacoma and frantically making a movie with last-minute criteria: this year the use of a superstition, a flashlight, a letter/message and the line “that wasn’t what I was expecting.” Tonight you can see the results at the viewing party at the Rialto, including food and drinks from Farelli’s, Katie Downs and Stella Artois. 7 p.m. May 10 (doors open 6 p.m.) Advance $13 non-members /$11 members/$15 at door. Rialto Theater, 310 S. 9th St., Tacoma. the grandcinema.com
