(Richard Shepard, US, 1991, 98 min, in English)

Lucy (Rosanna Arquette) is a under-paid, under-appreciated waitress at a terminally hip NYC restaurant called Dali. She’s also an aspiring escape artist desperately in need of cash to buy Harry Houdini’s wedding ring. Monte (David Bowie) is the shady but charming new bartender who desperately needs to get married at any cost. Together they join forces – along with Lucy’s best friend, the self-defense bra designing Viv (Eszter Balint) – to rob the popular restaurant, and all the “trend-sucking leeches” who dine there. As one might expect, it doesn’t go as planned, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Funny, romantic and wonderfully odd, the cult classic The Linguini Incident, co-starring Andre Gregory, Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin, is “an off the wall treat,” according to the LA Times. “A contemporary screwball comedy that actually works.

Click for Accessibility Info

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.

The majority of seats in our main cinema are 21″ wide from armrest to armrest; some seats are 19″ wide. We are working on creating the option of removable armrests!

We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.

The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!

If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at suji@nwfilmforum.org. Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.

Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.

NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.
