Frameline 33, San Francisco's International LGBT Film Festival, remains in full swing through Sunday, giving Bay Area moviegoers three more days to check out this year's featured selections before the closing-night bash at the Terra Gallery. Elsewhere, a pair of second-run favorites arrives at the Red Vic, while Tetro and Food, Inc. play on at the Embarcadero. As always, here's a list of some of the finest films currently in rotation at an indie theater near you.
With the San Francisco International Film Festival entering its final week, one could be forgiven for rushing to the Sundance Kabuki for last-chance screenings of Tyson, (500) Days of Summer or Paul Solet’s terrifying Grace. If rushing isn’t your thing, there are plenty of attractive alternatives awaiting you at the city’s indie theaters.
If your idea of recreational bliss includes bowling, driving around and the occasional acid flashback, make your way to the Red Vic this weekend for a cinematic experience of the most transcendent order. And if that’s not your thing, no worries – there are plenty of worthwhile films currently in rotation at an indie theater near you.
