anderForget about Rice-A-Roni. The real San Francisco treat this week can be found in the Mission at the Roxie Theater where they are celebrating upcoming opening of Wes Anderson’s latest confection (a word entirely appropriate to this particular movie) The Grand Budapest Hotel with a 35mm retrospective of Wes Anderson’s finest. Even better: Buy a ticket to any of the shows to enroll automatically in the Zissou Society, the perk of membership being a special sneak preview of what the Roxie is calling “a very exciting new movie” (read between the lines, people) on Thursday, March 13.

The Roxie Theater’s Wes Anderson retrospective runs Saturday, March 8-Thursday, March 13, a schedule that runs as follows:

Saturday, March 8: Moonrise Kingdom, 2:15pm and Rich Kids, 4pm. (The latter may not be a Wes Anderson film, but MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS is co-presenting with the promise that this 1979 comedy-drama—executive produced by Robert Altman—will reveal Anderson’s “secret DNA.”)

Sunday, March 9: The Royal Tenenbaums, 7pm

Monday, March 10: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, 7pm

Tuesday, March 11: The Darjeeling Limited, 7pm

Wednesday, March 12: Fantastic Mr. Fox, 7pm

Thursday, March 13: The delectable surprise sneak preview for Zissou Society members. A hint: It involves Wes Anderson. (Presented in DCP), 7pm.
