OK, the seats are lousy, nothing looks slick, clean and new, no big THXsound system and the concession stand is, well, limited. BUT you'll find the kind of independent film showing here that you'll never see at your local multiplex. And even when something does have giant crossover appeal, it's much cooler to see it at The Grand, in my opinion. There's just a great, community feel there. Become a member -- at the lowest level you pay $40 and get two free passes plus $1 every ticket you buy for a year, discounts, pre-sales etc. Well worth it to support independent cinema in Tacoma!
