I had a chance to take in the Seattle premier of Hunger Games 2 – Catching Fire, last night at the Big Picture Theatre. I joined an excited crowd of mostly 20-somethings, and an even more excited group was in line for the 11 PM show as I left.

If you are here in Seattle, why not join us for the final installment of our 3 Science Fiction film series, a special 11:15 AM “Bagels & Bloody Mary’s” screening of Catching Fire. After the show we’ll have a special 20-minute conversation with me, science fiction writer Brenda Cooper, and Mallory Smith, Managing Editor of Futurist.com and also a film student and script writer. The screening is almost sold out in this charming and intimate theatre, but there are still a few seats left for $15, which gets you a seat, a Bloody Mary or Mimosa, bagels and cream cheese and a great experience. Buy your ticket here.

The film is getting excellent reviews, see here and here and here, and is the #1 pre-selling film of 2013, likely to surpass the first film Hunger Games which is #14 on the all-time best selling movies.

Next week we’ll tell you how it went and why this is an important film phenomenon. Hope to see you on Sunday.
