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!

The Memory of Fish

Stranger Says:

No one loved the Elwha River like Dick Goin, a machinist-turned-activist who grew up along its borders. At a time when scientists were busy elsewhere, he kept track of the dwindling salmon population, filling notebooks with his findings. "Dams and fish can’t work together at all," he states, so he made dam removal his mission. Alongside narration from Lili Taylor, codirectors Jennifer Galvin and Sachi Cunningham tell Goin's story through stunning nature imagery and his lyrical words. As he concludes, "A river doesn't want to be tethered." This is a lovely tribute to one of the Northwest’s most passionate conservationists. (KATHY FENNESSY)
