Surely you are aware of the darlingness of Columbia City. Yes? Good. Then let us move on to the beef of the matter. If you haven't been to Columbia City Cinema—the independently owned "little cinema that could"—now is the time to go. It's facing some new-economy struggles and hoping to raise $20,000 to carry it through to summer blockbuster season. Perhaps a date? Pizza pie at Tutta Bella followed by the middling but monster-laden Clash of the Titans? Followed by sexual lovemaking? Followed by basking in the satisfied glow of having contributed to a livable, walkable, vibrant neighborhood (and also the sex)? Columbia City Cinema is also accepting donations and selling stock options. Visit for details. (4816 Rainier Ave S, 721-3156.)
