The weather's supposed to be totally crappy this week, which is of course a perfect opportunity to compare the relative merits of James Bond movies from the 1960s and 70s.

Central Cinema, which seems to be on a roll lately, is showing a marathon of Bond films (Thunderball, A View to a Kill, Goldfinger, Moonraker and On Her Majesty's Secret Service) this week and next.

And, of course, Central Cinema is that awesome local theater where you can drink beers and eat fancy pizza while you watch.

Thunderball shows tonight at 6:30 and 9:30. A full schedule of the marathon is here. At Central Cinema (1411 21st Avenue). Tickets are $6.


The Seattle University Law School is hosting a panel discussion on the panhandling regulations being proposed by City Councilmember Tim Burgess. Burgess will be there to argue for the proposed rules, which target "aggressive panhandling"

Also taking part in the panhandling forum: Anita Khandelwal, an attorney with The Defender Association's Racial Disparity Project.

The Disparity Project, as Erica C. Barnett reported, put out an analysis last month claiming that Burgess' proposal doesn't address the most common complaints people have made about aggressive panhandlers, and that most of the complaints would be addressed by existing law.

Tim Harris, Real Change Executive Director and outspoken advocate for the homeless (and always great on panels), and Downtown Seattle Policy Director, Jon Scholes, are also taking part in the discussion.

Tomorrow at 7 pm, at the Seattle University School of Law (901 12th Avenue, Room C5).
