There are not a whole lot of new treats at the bottom of this column’s stocking for the quiet week between Christmas and the new year. But here are a few screenings for your consideration.
Another in a series of odd double bills takes place over at the Central Cinema this week. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan (and Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher) pair up in the 1989 romantic comedy “When Harry Met Sally ...” while Mike Myers and Dana Carvey party on in 1992’s “Wayne’s World.” Both films play at various times through Wednesday. 1411 21st Ave., Seattle. Tickets are $6 (www.central-cinema.com).
Up north at the Historic Everett Theatre there will be three showings of the drag race biopic “Snake and Mongoose” at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 for seniors/students/military, $10 general. 2911 Colby Ave., Everett (425-258-6766 or www.historiceveretttheatre.org).
And you still have a chance to ring your bell for Clarence a few more times: Frank Capra’s 1946 classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” wraps up its annual stay at the Grand Illusion on Thursday. Tickets are $5 for members, $6-$8 general admission. 1403 N.E. 50th St., Seattle (206-523-3935 or www.grandillusioncinema.org ).
