A few ideas to fill your weekend, June 22-24, from Lynn Jacobson, Features Editor for the Seattle Times:

"Grassroots": A monorail enthusiast becomes an unlikely candidate for the Seattle City Council in this comedy, based on a real-life 2001 campaign. We talked about this movie recently when it closed Seattle International Film Festival; now it's back for a regular run at the Harvard Exit.

Luminaries at Museum of Flight: The Seattle Science Festival continues through the end of the month, and this weekend, you can hear astronauts Bonnie Dunbar and George "Pinky" Nelson talk at the Museum of Flight about their multiple shuttle missions. They speak at 8 p.m. Friday and the Luminaries series ends June 29 with a program on gaming that features a Seattle Symphony performance of music from "The Matrix."

Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and PrideFest: Seattle Center is hopping this weekend with two huge events. The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon benefits the American Cancer Society, and it gets underway early Saturday morning. On Sunday, PrideFest, with entertainment on three stages, follows the Pride Parade, which travels down Fourth Avenue in the morning.
