“Look out, Godzilla!” Yes, the tall, dark and scaly one has taken over most of the theaters in the nation (if not the world) this weekend, and the 40th Seattle International Film Festival has landed in several cinemas, but there are a few other options for Seattle moviegoers.

The Northwest Film Forum will screen Fritz Lang’s 1927 “Metropolis,” accompanied by a new score from GRID, a Seattle-based live music-to-film project, at 7 p.m. Friday, May 16. Tickets for this presentation are $12. The “John Hubley Centennial,” a collection of newly restored 35mm prints of works by the American film animator, will screen Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18. 1515 12th Ave., Seattle. Tickets are $8 for NWFF members, $8-$11 general admission (800-838-3006 or www.nwfilmforum.org).

The Ark Lodge Cinemas will show Stuart Gordon’s 1985 ultra gory “Re-Animator,” an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s tale about a crazy scientist who uses a special serum to revive dead bodies, at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 22. 4816 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle. Tickets are $7-$11 (206-721-3156 or www.arklodgecinemas.com).

SEEDArts Cinema will screen the 2013 documentary “Inequality for All,” which examines income inequality in America, followed by a panel discussion. 7 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 S. Alaska St., Seattle; $5 (www.rainiervalleyculturalcenter.org/cinema).

The “Friday Night at the Meaningful Movies” series presents Robert Greenwald’s 2013 documentary “Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars,” which looks at the impact of U.S. drone strikes at home and abroad, at 7 p.m. Friday, May 16, at Keystone Congregational United Church of Christ, 5019 Keystone Place N., Seattle. The event is free, donations accepted (meaningfulmovies.org).

And finally, over at Central Cinema this week, you can see two Wes Anderson films. “Bottle Rocket,” the 1996 tale of three friends on a road trip, or his 2009 stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl’s tale “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” featuring the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Jason Schwartzman . Tickets are $7 per film. 1411 21st Ave., Seattle ( central-cinema.com ).
