It's Easter weekend, and for a lot of us that means easter egg hunts, church services, and dinner with the extended family. After stuffing yourself silly with chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and ham and listening to Uncle Bert's war stories for the 89,000th time, you'll be ready to escape -- and where better to escape to than the movies? If you live in Seattle, count yourself lucky. You'll have more to choose from than Scary Movie 4 or The Wild.
