In light of coronavirus news and restrictions on gatherings put in place by Governor Inslee, Washington movie theaters have closed until further notice. We know, we're sad too! While we all practice social distancing in order to help flatten the curve of the virus, we'd suggest checking out our calendar of upcoming livestreamed events. Stay safe out there!

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

Alex Gibney, the director who exposed the dark secrets of Scientology with the documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and detailed the collapse of Enron with Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, turns his attention to the late CEO of Apple in Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine. And what does he have to say about this much-worshipped visionary, whose death was a global event? That he was basically an asshole. He treated his family, his workers, and his society like shit. He cared more for his products than his children, he bullied employees who dared to challenge his authority, and he thought the kind of philanthropy that Bill Gates is known for was a complete waste of time and money. Take everything you can and give nothing back—that was the heart and soul of this man. by Charles Mudede
