the Valentino movie mystery

I have been dying to see Valentino: The Last Emporer.  The documentary about the recently retired fashion designer Valentino Garavani has recieved acclaim across the country and has been featured at the Chicago, Venice, and Toronto Film Festivals.  It is currently showing all over New York City and in selected cities in the US.

So far, I have not heard of the film playing anywhere in Seattle, officially.  A few Google searches lead me to the the movie's Facebook page and someone's blog that both claimed the movie would be playing at Landmark Seven Gables on April 17.

I called the theater, and could not get a person on the phone, or a listing that was acurate after April 10. Great.  Next, I called the PR office for the film.  They of course had no idea and refered me back to the film's website.  It's listing of theaters so far does not include Seattle.

I'm determined to solve this cinematic mystery.  If it turns out that Valentino: The Last Emporer is not scheduled to play in Seattle, lets change that! Click here, and scroll down to "Bring Valentino: The Last Emporer" to your city!" and fight the good fight!
