7 CHINESE BROTHERS: Larry, an inebriated sad sack, finds himself smitten with the boss of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube, Lupe. Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman’s real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major, and do his cantankerous grandmother proud? Written and directed by Bob Byington, “7 Chinese Brothers” is empathetic in tone, dry in humor.
Starring Jason Schwatzman, Eleanore Pienta (will be in attendance).
5) Sunday, 4/26 @ 7:30pm
THE PRIMARY INSTINCT: Documentary film. A live recording of actor Stephen Tobolowsky telling stories last year at Seattle’s Auburn Theatre.

In 2009 he started the hugely popular podcast “The Tobolowsky Files,” and will be in attendance at the screening.
