It will be there until May 6th. ~ See it if you can ~ it’s excellent, very powerful!

We almost didn’t make it there in time due to bottleneck traffic mess after the exit off I-5 in Seattle due to construction. We arrived at the theater with only a few minutes to spare.
Noel works there, so we were also able to have dinner with him after the matinee while he was on his dinner break. That was great of course. :–)
