10.24.13 // GeekGirlCon and Central Cinema Present…
Get ready to level up! GeekGirlCon and Central Cinema are joining forces for an evening filled with high kicks and karate chops. Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is showing on Central Cinema’s silver screen on November 20, 2013, at both 7:00 p.m. and 9:40 p.m.
Based on the graphic novel by Bryan Lee O’Malley, the film combines the worlds of video games and comic books with plenty of ka-pow. Watch wannabe-rockstar Scott Pilgrim on his quest to defeat not just one, but seven evil ex-boyfriends of his crush, Ramona Flowers. As if that task wasn’t tough enough, roadblocks along the way include bitter bandmates, a bloodthirsty old flame, and maybe even his own past mistakes. He’s going to need all the 1-ups he can get. Geeky greats Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Jason Schwartzman deliver knock-out performances worthy of the original book series.
GeekGirlCon and Central Cinema events often become sold-out affairs, so make like a video game character and catch ‘em while you can! Swords and swear words fly in the flick, so please keep in mind its PG-13 rating if you have any young geeks in your family.
Deets that can’t be beat:
- When: Wednesday, November 20, 7:00 p.m. and 9:40 p.m.
- Where: Central Cinema, 1411 21st Avenue, Seattle (21st Ave and East Union Street)

For those of us without jetpacks, the #2 bus drops off around the corner from the theatre at 20th & Union. The #48 is also an easy option, stopping at 23rd and Union just two blocks away.
Bi-furiously hungry before the show? No need to flip; food and drink are available for purchase right inside Central Cinema. Bust out your best neon-colored ‘do and get into battle mode for this evening of epic epicness!
